The Most Serene Republic of Valenair is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Captain-Regent Pavao Halford XII with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, anti-smoking policies, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.988 billion Valenairians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

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 957 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 240,162 Florins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,515,741 per year while the poor average 15,931, a ratio of 95.1 to 1.

Homeless people can be found sleeping on streets in front of unoccupied second homes, there have been reports of people marrying housepets, burnt-out forty-foot-tall wicker men dot the countryside, and former polygamists always seem to have a huge number of visiting cousins. 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 27,047th in the world and 1,500th in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 4,335.98 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
