The Federation of Shicksal is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Siegfried Kaslana with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, otherworldly petting zoo, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 2.777 billion Valkyries enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hyperion. The average income tax rate is 72.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Valkryja economy, worth 360 trillion Crystals a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 129,747 Crystals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The Great Valkryja Melting Pot boils out ethnic heritage, the nation's train stations are widely considered to be the ugliest in Europe, for the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs, and the government has enacted freedom of information. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shicksal's national animal is the Honkai, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Imaginary Tree.
