The Free Land of Valise is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 727 million Valiseans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of MemeVille. The average income tax rate is 78.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Valisean economy, worth 75.2 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is an impressive 103,410 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government burgles the houses of holidaying citizens, multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy", a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, and nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valise's national animal is the fouine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Valise is ranked 15,504th in the world and 1st in Controlistia for Lowest Crime Rates, with 84.93 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
