The Holy and Exalted Empire of Valentian Elysium is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Holy Emperor Nino II the Good with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.552 billion Valento-Elysians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brudondam. The average income tax rate is 78.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Valentian-Elysian economy, worth 774 trillion b0Is a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 118,280 b0Is, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Passive-aggressive congratulations cards inform mums-to-be that their pregnancy is their greatest achievement in life, party-lovers often change religions just for the weekend, shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, and national park visitors are reporting a rash of poison ivy sightings. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valentian Elysium's national animal is the robin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Valentian Elysium is ranked 216,919th in the world and 1,251st in 10000 Islands for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,517.01 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
