The Kingdom of Valocke is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Mayor Carneggie with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, hard-working population of 2.032 billion Valockeans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valbury. The average income tax rate is 67.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Valockean economy, worth 234 trillion Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 115,500 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

There is something rotten in the state of Valocke, old warplanes and tanks that break down can't be repaired since no one makes the parts anymore, Valockean companies generally just fire employees in lieu of giving them vacation, and citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valocke's national animal is the Rhino, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Valocke is ranked 7,218th in the world and 159th in the West Pacific for Best Weather, with 257 Meters Of Sunlight.
