The Wondrously Happy Cat Utopia of Valentine Z is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Valkyrie Valentijn Samantha Vrij Maxwell with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, vat-grown people, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 5.98 billion Valentians 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.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lower-Aoutpine Yangon. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Valentian economy, worth a remarkable 1,682 trillion Valentian Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 281,312 Valentian Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians sweat as journalists scour internet archives for any mention of them, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, therapists can always squeeze in another house-call, and families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valentine Z's national animal is the ကြောင်, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Theravada Buddhism.

Valentine Z is ranked 152,020th in the world and 24th in Singapore for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -27.26 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
