The Most Serene Republic of Valenair is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Captain-Regent Pavao Halford XII with an even hand, and notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 5.404 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, liberal, 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 1,344 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 248,770 Florins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,522,204 per year while the poor average 17,877, a ratio of 85.1 to 1.

The richest citizens live in sheltered private citadels, at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Captain-Regent Pavao Halford XII's wardrobe, prisoners due for execution often use their final statement to complain about soggy bread rolls, and most political debates are settled with fistfights. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. 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 544th in the world and 18th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 1.52 million Standard Monetary Units.
