The Republic of Convallaria is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President La Salle with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, unlimited-speed roads, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 6.518 billion Convallarians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darkwater. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Convallarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,173 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 180,102 Dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,214,603 per year while the poor average 9,916, a ratio of 122 to 1.

The country's population is reported with a margin of error of several billions, what citizens give with one hand they take away with the other, local councils have to call in dump trucks to clear parks of dinosaur droppings, and beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Convallaria's national animal is the Silver Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Deconstructionist Judaism.

Convallaria is ranked 2,095th in the world and 3rd in A Modern World for Most Avoided, scoring 857.78 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
