The People's United Provinces of Valrifell is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Lord Vanguard Mikel Kéndŕgne with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.387 billion Valrishvolk enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dunskurth. The average income tax rate is 39.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Valrish economy, worth a remarkable 2,577 trillion Sovereigns 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 208,052 Sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Valrishvolk incessantly needle their doctors for relief, workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, the nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, and feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary. Crime is totally unknown. Valrifell's national animal is the gryffon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of Anzűl.

Valrifell is ranked 17,323rd in the world and 4th in Alyr for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,393.23 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
