The Mostly Lesbian Matriarchy of Val Halla is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Most Divine Empress Konata Izumi with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 10.868 billion Val Hallans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nya York. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Val Hallan economy, worth a remarkable 1,475 trillion Catnips a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Tourism industry. Average income is an impressive 135,738 Catnips, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Urbanites are banned from bucolic settings for safety concerns, distant and obscure female relatives succeed to the Val Hallan throne, recognised healthcare professionals treat diabetes with a grain of sugar in a barrel of water, and Most Divine Empress Konata Izumi can often be found attempting to coax random citizens' cats down from trees. Crime is totally unknown. Val Halla's national animal is the Lesser Spotted Neko, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Kitty Cat Cult.

Val Halla is ranked 155,818th in the world and 6,580th in Osiris for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -7.47 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
