The Violet Vizier of Valerievna is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Miss Bad Life Choices with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, ban on automobiles, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 4.909 billion Peebbles are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Spirituality, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valerievna City. The average income tax rate is 47.5%.

The all-consuming Peebble economy, worth 787 trillion candy canes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 160,459 candy canes, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans, anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves, children deemed 'disorderly' or otherwise unfit for public schools are shipped off to military academies, and visitors to Valerievna are microchipped and must be escorted by a Peebble soldier - even to the bathroom. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Valerievna's national animal is the fish, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Lynxism.

Valerievna is ranked 105,179th in the world and 3,827th in Osiris for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 638.03 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
