The Dominion of Valannor is a small, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, avant-garde cinema, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 26 million Valannorians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Welfare are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 48.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Valannorian economy, worth 1.14 trillion Castars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 43,713 Castars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Many believe that Leader's head is big enough for the sun to orbit around it, women who are caught shoplifting are sent home to their fathers with a patronising pat on the bottom, engine room hooch is the drink of choice among the nation's navy, and some people will do literally anything to be in the spotlight. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valannor's national animal is the Dragon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Valannor is ranked 129,995th in the world and 70th in Middle Earth for Most Developed, scoring 53.9 on the Human Development Index.
