The Nine in the Afternoon of Valerievna is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Miss Bad Life Choices with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, fear of technology, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.127 billion Peebbles are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Spirituality, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Law & Order and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valerievna City. The average income tax rate is 56.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Peebble economy, worth a remarkable 1,048 trillion gold coins a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 171,068 gold coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

The Counter-Terrorism Unit has been nicknamed "Big Bad Wolf" for its tendency towards urban demolition, the Grinder at Fat Sal's Deli and Recycling Center is a national institution, the barter economy has taken over as the gold coin has become worthless, and epidemiologists happily announce that the reported incidence of depression is close to zero percent. Crime is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Valerievna's national animal is the monster, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Lynxism.

Valerievna is ranked 233,131st in the world and 7,415th in Osiris for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -3.16 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
