The Kingdom of Valocke is a massive, safe nation, ruled by June with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 4.933 billion Valockeans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valbury. The average income tax rate is 39.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Valockean economy, worth 617 trillion Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 125,117 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Factories grind to a halt every time there is an election, a little pushing and pulling is needed for big ships to pass, children must be board certified to append "Jr" to their name, and Jennifer Government is a bestseller. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Valocke's national animal is the Rhino, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Valocke is ranked 16,526th in the world and 317th in the West Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 87,284.78 Standard Monetary Units.
