The United Cantons of Valtrona is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Director Johnathan Schneider with a fair hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, daily referendums, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.282 billion Valtronans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rhina. The average income tax rate is 33.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Valtronan economy, worth a remarkable 1,082 trillion Yakkinas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 205,008 Yakkinas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Preschoolers practice disarming active shooters before naptime, returning vacationers often find that their property is now a construction site, helium balloons lift the nation's spacecraft towards the heavens, and exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting. Crime is well under control. Valtrona's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Secularism.

Valtrona is ranked 12,021st in the world and 229th in Europe for Most Developed, scoring 89.05 on the Human Development Index.
