The Most Serene Republic of Valenair is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Captain-Regent Pavao Halford XII with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, unlimited-speed roads, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 4.882 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 1,217 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 249,288 Florins, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,624,421 per year while the poor average 15,158, a ratio of 107 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, 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 152,456th in the world and 9,169th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 75.95 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
