The Incorporated State of Valpede is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Alon Teirnfay with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, punitive income tax rates, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 8.316 billion Valpedeans 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, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Unicorn City. The average income tax rate is 65.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Valpedean economy, worth 592 trillion Stocks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 71,196 Stocks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Young men in tiny bikinis draw neither comment nor stares on the morning commute, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, teens are voting on which C-List pop star will be next to be evicted from the opera house, and the nation is reliant on the principle of mutually assured destruction to maintain its security. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valpede's national animal is the Unicorn, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Valpede is ranked 178,661st in the world and 5,587th in the Rejected Realms for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 427.61 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
