The Crowned Republic of Convallaria is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Beaumont with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 4.005 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 696 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 173,899 Dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,478,885 per year while the poor average 3,652, a ratio of 404 to 1.

It turns out that money can buy you happiness, Convallaria is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, cities are engulfed by smog, and wait staff claim to like it when odorous customers flirt with them. 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 Reconstructionist Judaism.

Convallaria is ranked 57,756th in the world and 16th in A Modern World for Most Developed, scoring 56.58 on the Human Development Index.
