The United Kingdom of Valladares is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 25.451 billion Valladars are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Law & Order, and Spirituality are also considered important, while International Aid and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Metropolis. The average income tax rate is 94.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Valladar economy, worth a remarkable 4,978 trillion Points a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 195,595 Points, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits, elections are won by the candidate who makes the best 'yo mama' jokes, rugby players that knock each other over always stop to make sure the other fellow is okay, and televangelists flaunt their expensive cars when they attend charity events. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valladares's national animal is the Duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Valladares is ranked 153,542nd in the world and 71st in Rushmore for Most Pro-Market, scoring 25 on the Rand Index.
