The Skull Island Protectorate of Vagabond Valley is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Captain Flash Dove with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.104 billion Vagabonds have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ledatic. The average income tax rate is 72.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Vagabond economy, worth 687 trillion Gold Coins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 112,606 Gold Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children, relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, and biology and religious education classes have recently been merged. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vagabond Valley's national animal is the grizzly bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Vagabond Valley is ranked 15,072nd in the world and 826th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 115.83 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
