The Democratic Eco-Communities of Valdonland is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by People's Constitutional Boule with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, complete lack of prisons, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.757 billion Valdish 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Artemis Autonomous Eco-Community. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The large but inefficient Valdish economy, worth 173 trillion sods a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 62,802 sods, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Conversion therapy coupons are a popular present for coming of age ceremonies, voter turnout for the election of the Junior Assistant for Non-Digital Media Strategies has been unsurprisingly low, citizens praise the weeds that overwhelm their narrow vegetable realm, and ships no longer sail as no one wants to encounter Valdish pirates. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valdonland's national animal is the black fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Eastern Orthodox Christianity.

Valdonland is ranked 252,571st in the world and 344th in Refugia for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.24 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
