The Kingdom of Valkenia is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 356 million Valkenians 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 tiny, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.3%.

The strong Valkenian economy, worth 21.3 trillion Cerv coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 59,963 Cerv coins, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.

All major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime is moderate. Valkenia's national animal is the Horse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Valkenia is ranked 221,721st in the world and 433rd in The Hole To Hide In for Best Weather, with 78 meters of sunlight.
