The Happy-Go-Lucky Land of HappyValley0012 is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by James Franklin with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 33.577 billion Staters hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of University Park. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The all-consuming HappyValleyan economy, worth a remarkable 5,151 trillion lion dineroes a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 153,411 lion dineroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government has the power to seize property at will, diplomatic cables about James Franklin have suddenly been very flattering, tourists are forbidden to enter Native HappyValleyan lands, and the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. HappyValley0012's national animal is the nittany lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

HappyValley0012 is ranked 66,913th in the world and 7th in Pennsylvania for Most Politically Free, scoring 72.38 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
