The Most likely procrastinating of Valdiu is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Alexander Sterling with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, otherworldly petting zoo, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 6.227 billion Valdians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Prevale. The average income tax rate is 86.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Valdian economy, worth 933 trillion Arians a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 149,899 Arians, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, telling someone to 'break a leg' is considered a criminal inducement to self harm, stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, and the voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning. Crime is totally unknown. Valdiu's national animal is the Spinner Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Valdiu is ranked 12,982nd in the world and 1st in The Cornellian Empire for Most Politically Free, scoring 81.81 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
