The Confederacy of Vale Helsraetoni is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Chip Douglas with an iron fist, and renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, keen interest in outer space, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 8.616 billion Vale Helsraetonians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oldtown. The average income tax rate is 41.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vale Helsraetonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,883 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 218,609 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery, attempts to inform people about their unclaimed property are often mistaken for telephone scams, colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Vale Helsraetonian Liberator", and Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vale Helsraetoni's national animal is the cobra, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Vale Helsraetoni is ranked 1,726th in the world and 28th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 8,868.8 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
