The Republic of Townsvalley is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Mike Harriot with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, rampant corporate plagiarism, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 4.821 billion Civilians 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 tiny, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Newlands. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Civlized economy, worth 378 trillion Hektes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining and Basket Weaving. Average income is 78,530 Hektes, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 507,115 per year while the poor average 4,896, a ratio of 103 to 1.

Manual labourers must be willing to have cybernetic limbs to get a job, the only place where one can see the Civlized cherry tree is in a museum, claiming that "my cousin said it was legal" is a common courtroom defense, and alcoholism is the newest import from Dàguó. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Townsvalley's national animal is the Markhor, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Townsvalley is ranked 238,654th in the world and 10,008th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -7.07 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
