Valatic Ash

Population1.433 billion

CapitalMount Ash


The Kingdom of Valatic Ash is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Cassiel with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate population of 1.433 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 80.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Valatic Ashian economy, worth 131 trillion rubles a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 92,052 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, Valatic Ashian novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about Cassiel, being Cassiel has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, and high school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate. Crime 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.

Valatic Ash is ranked 58,234th in the world and 2,944th in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 78.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
