The Most Serene Republic of Valenair is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Captain-Regent Pavao Halford XII with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 6.339 billion Valenairians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St George. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Valenairian economy, worth a remarkable 1,584 trillion Florins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 249,912 Florins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,319,931 per year while the poor average 25,143, a ratio of 52.5 to 1.

Most political debates are settled with fistfights, gossip magazines are more interested in astrological stars than celebrity ones, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and Captain-Regent Pavao Halford XII's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Valenair's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Valenairian Byzantine Catholic.

Valenair is ranked 31,500th in the world and 1,681st in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 66.43 on the Human Development Index.
