The Minecraft River Valley of A Salmon Named Harold is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Harold with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.575 billion pineapple pizza enjoyers enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of a comically large fish bowl. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient pineapple pizza enjoyer economy, worth a remarkable 1,424 trillion IOU Cards a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 216,580 IOU Cards, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's no such thing as bad publicity, the pineapple pizza enjoyer Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, there's never enough space in space, and relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly. Crime is totally unknown. A Salmon Named Harold's national animal is the Salmon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the questioning of string cheese.

A Salmon Named Harold is ranked 24,054th in the world and 780th in The North Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 1 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
