The Tattered Puppet State of Valrifall is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Mikel Kendagne with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, state-planned economy, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.653 billion Valrashes are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The large, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Social Policy, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Doonskarth. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37.9%.

The very strong Valrash economy, worth 248 trillion Caps a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 43,902 Caps, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 241,137 per year while the poor average 4,062, a ratio of 59.4 to 1.

Piracy is the nation's most popular pastime, a major religion has been named as Valrifall's national religion, Mikel Kendagne has just been declared ruler of Valrifall in an international press conference, and politicians that report exaggerated crowd sizes for their speeches are dismissed for being delusional. Crime is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Valrifall's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Valrifall is ranked 50,874th in the world and 30th in The Brotherhood of Malice for Fattest Citizens, with 13.75 Obesity Rate.
