The Kingdom of Valatic Ash is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Cassiel with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 1.86 billion Valatic Ashians 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mount Ash. The average income tax rate is 82.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Valatic Ashian economy, worth 184 trillion rubles a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 99,428 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, tigers are considered a delicacy, multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy", and parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valatic Ash's national animal is the tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is None.

Valatic Ash is ranked 170,746th in the world and 8,464th in The North Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 20.04 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
