The Queendom of Vallermoore is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Yocasta with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, triple-decker prams, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 24.546 billion Vallermooreans 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 medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Law & Order, and Defense also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grand City. The average income tax rate is 86.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Vallermoorean economy, worth a remarkable 6,647 trillion Chingchings a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 270,836 Chingchings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, the only things written in the stars are arrest warrants for astrologers, and government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vallermoore's national animal is the Giant Spider, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Megatronism.

Vallermoore is ranked 7,979th in the world and 14th in The Union of Democratic States for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100.14 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
