Valatic Ash

Population2.738 billion

CapitalMount Ash


The Kingdom of Valatic Ash is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Cassiel with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and parental licensing program. The compassionate population of 2.738 billion Valatic Ashians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mount Ash. The average income tax rate is 84.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Valatic Ashian economy, worth 274 trillion rubles a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 100,123 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, politicians are often seen attending regional history classes at primary schools within their constituencies, 4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days', and being impolite in public is punishable by heavy fines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valatic Ash's national animal is the tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is None.

Valatic Ash is ranked 32,437th in the world and 1,498th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 100,123.44 Standard Monetary Units.
