The West Valley Mountains

Population889 million

CapitalLeadership City
LeaderPresident Ed Venture


The Federal Republic of The West Valley Mountains is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Ed Venture with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 889 million West Valley Mountaineers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leadership City. The average income tax rate is 69.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient West Valley Mountainous economy, worth 86.1 trillion monies a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 96,834 monies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

People's charity begins and ends at home, literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft, and when the air force says "Black Hawk Down" they mean the feathers of the West Valley Mountainous dark-plume goshawk. Crime is totally unknown. The West Valley Mountains's national animal is the goose, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The West Valley Mountains is ranked 26,162nd in the world and 895th in the South Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 77.14 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
