The Minecraft River Valley of A Salmon Named Harold is a massive, genial nation, ruled by a salmon named Harold with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 1.95 billion Salmonns enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded 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 89.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Salmonn economy, worth 277 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 142,335 IOU Cards, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", the official Salmonn Phrase Book weighs as much as a small child, frat-house partying has become the national pastime, and constipated disaster survivors are rapidly learning that MRE is short for "Meal Requiring Enemas". Crime is totally unknown. 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 string cheese.

A Salmon Named Harold is ranked 7,488th in the world and 416th in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,870.35 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
