The Most Serene Republic of Valenair is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Captain-Regent Pavao Halford XII with an even hand, and renowned for its flagrant waste-dumping, sprawling nuclear power plants, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 6.868 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 1,718 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 250,161 Florins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,280,799 per year while the poor average 26,827, a ratio of 47.7 to 1.

Captain-Regent Pavao Halford XII's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies, if foreigners can hit a spittoon from five paces they get a free holiday to Valenair, the roar of the Niagara 3000 mega-loo can be heard several blocks away, and terrorist videos start by thanking their sponsors. 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 11,587th in the world and 272nd in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 1,159.86708407348 Days.
