The Most Serene Republic of Valenair is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Captain-Regent Pavao Halford XII with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 4.5 billion Valenairians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St George. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Valenairian economy, worth a remarkable 1,128 trillion Florins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 250,873 Florins, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,629,462 per year while the poor average 15,393, a ratio of 105 to 1.

Young girls and senior citizens alike can be spotted wearing colourful short shorts, it's best not to ask what goes into St George Fried Chicken's secret blend of herbs and spices, the nation refuses to provide international aid, and police struggle to solve crimes due to the lack of fingerprint records. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Valenair's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Valenairian Byzantine Catholic.

Valenair is ranked 1,528th in the world and 49th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 17,496.85 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
