The Minecraft River Valley of A Salmon Named Harold is a massive, genial nation, ruled by a salmon named Harold with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2 billion Salmonns are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central Hub. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Salmonn economy, worth 287 trillion IOU Cards a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 143,851 IOU Cards, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The masses are surrendering their civil liberties without complaint for the sake of shopping convenience, A salmon named Harold is considering changing the Salmonn flag to one with more glitter, metal detectors have been banned after a bottle cap caused a riot at the beach, and the newest shade developed by A Salmon Named Harold's dye industry has been dubbed 'Agent Orange'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. A Salmon Named Harold's national animal is the Salmon, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is the questioning of string cheese.

A Salmon Named Harold is ranked 61,885th in the world and 1,730th in The North Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 287 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
