The Kingdom of Vahlaria is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 238 million Vahlarians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 70.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Vahlarian economy, worth 14.8 trillion Forts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 62,326 Forts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government confiscates candy from babies for 'the greater good' of the nation, anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves, Dogman-branded weapons are all the rage in the militaristic comic-book community, and vanity is considered the fifth cardinal virtue. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vahlaria's national animal is the Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vahlaria is ranked 43,156th in the world and 1st in Greater Nixsus for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 4,497.8 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
