The Republic of Valdez Islands is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Ferdinand Ortiz with an even hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, ban on automobiles, and daily referendums. The democratic population of 1.411 billion Valdez Islandsians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Puerto Valdes. The average income tax rate is 26.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Valdez Islandsian economy, worth 64.1 trillion Valdezian Pesos a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Trout Farming, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 45,425 Valdezian Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

People seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, the rich tend their gardens inside gated urban farming communities, citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, and indigenous tribal elders can be recognised by their designer watches and expensive suits. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valdez Islands's national animal is the Rua, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Valdez Islands is ranked 61,589th in the world and 15th in Regionless for Healthiest Citizens, with 3.93 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
