The Federal Republic of Valentir is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by William Ashton with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, humorless population of 14.084 billion Valentirians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valeins. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Valentirian economy, worth a remarkable 1,848 trillion Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 131,232 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Solid-gold toilets are Valentirian prisons' least expensive furnishings, workers for the environmental protection agency are patted down for tartar sauce every morning, many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators, and a widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valentir's national animal is the Kangaroo, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Embrian Church.

Valentir is ranked 12,385th in the world and 3rd in Kylaris for Smartest Citizens, with 79.46 Quips Per Hour.
