The Republic of Townsvalley is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister with an even hand, and notable for its teetotalling pirates, feral children, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 8.612 billion Citizens are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, corrupt, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Administration, with Environment, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Industry and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Newlands. The average income tax rate is 17.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Townsvalleyian economy, worth 731 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Retail, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 84,981 Hektes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Stray dogs and children root through the trash for snacks, interest in globalism never flags, the wealthiest parts of the country receive the most government spending, and a degree in Prime Minister Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Townsvalley's national animal is the Markhor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Townsvalley is ranked 3,042nd in the world and 96th in The North Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 35 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
