The Minecraft River Valley of A Salmon Named Harold is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Harold with an even hand, and notable for its teetotalling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.512 billion Salmonns enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central Hub. The average income tax rate is 81.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Salmonn economy, worth 194 trillion IOU Cards a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 128,779 IOU Cards, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, depression sinks in after each election when voters realize they are stuck with these people for years, and strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. A Salmon Named Harold's national animal is the Salmon, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is the questioning of oatmeal.

A Salmon Named Harold is ranked 20,403rd in the world and 936th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 128,779.93 Standard Monetary Units.
