The Terraforming Society of Valles Marineris Mining co is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Terraforming Council with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 4.614 billion Vallesians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ares. The average income tax rate is 78.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vallesian economy, worth 554 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 120,207 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Deceased politicians spam the public with thousands of AI-generated voicemails, faceless corporations are expected to assume parental responsibility over millions of teenagers, visiting dignitaries often end up cuddling in the hot tub with The Terraforming Council, and young girls and senior citizens alike can be spotted wearing colourful short shorts. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valles Marineris Mining co's national animal is the Olympus Mons Skink, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Valles Marineris Mining co is ranked 7,422nd in the world and 40th in Conch Kingdom for Nicest Citizens, with 38.16 average smiles per day.
