The Nine in the Afternoon of Valerievna is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Miss Bad Life Choices with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.144 billion Peebbles are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Spirituality, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Law & Order and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valerievna City. The average income tax rate is 56.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Peebble economy, worth a remarkable 1,051 trillion gold coins a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 171,068 gold coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

The Counter-Terrorism Unit has been nicknamed "Big Bad Wolf" for its tendency towards urban demolition, the Grinder at Fat Sal's Deli and Recycling Center is a national institution, the barter economy has taken over as the gold coin has become worthless, and epidemiologists happily announce that the reported incidence of depression is close to zero percent. Crime is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Valerievna's national animal is the monster, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Lynxism.

Valerievna is ranked 136,811th in the world and 4,470th in Osiris for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 338.81 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
