The Clad in Gold Republic of Valrknut is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Riders with an even hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, keen interest in outer space, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 19.226 billion Valrutians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Montemare. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Valrutian economy, worth an astonishing 13,558 trillion St Johns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is a breathtaking 705,230 St Johns, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,774,394 per year while the poor average 69,002, a ratio of 54.7 to 1.

The justice of Valrknut is considered superior to that of other nations, government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, loan operators are losing interest due to lost interest, and pop sensation "Jack and the Holograms" is storming the charts. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Valrknut's national animal is the Winged Lynx, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Church of Nyarlathotep.

Valrknut is ranked 257,885th in the world and 1st in Ancient Epic League of Epicness for Least Corrupt Governments, with 0.89 percentage of bribes refused.
