The Islamic Kingdom of Townsvalley is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Adams with an even hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 2.688 billion Civilians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Administration, although Industry, Environment, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Healthcare and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Newlands. The average income tax rate is 71.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Townsvalley economy, worth 164 trillion Hektes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, extremely specialized black market in Retail and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 61,326 Hektes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government ministers sport new billboards that read 'Will Trade Votes for Private Members' Bill Support', it is a crime to operate a combine harvester while intoxicated, all industry is owned and run by the government, and the nation's air force consists of strongly-worded letters folded into paper airplanes. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Townsvalley's national animal is the Markhor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Townsvalley is ranked 28,366th in the world and 12th in Council of Islamic States for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 96.27 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
