The Minecraft River Valley of A Salmon Named Harold is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by a salmon named Harold with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 2.922 billion Salmonns enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central Hub. The average income tax rate is 73.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Salmonn economy, worth 436 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 reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 149,309 IOU Cards, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Surprising numbers of poor people are protesting against taxing the rich, A Salmon Named Harold successfully hosted the The North Pacific Olympics, stolen Reuben sandwiches are met with detailed and thorough police investigations, and inheritance tax has recently been abolished. 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 230,831st in the world and 9,208th in The North Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 18.48 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
