The Imperial States of Valrifell is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by First Consul Mikél Kéndŕgne with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, pith helmet sales, and national health service. The compassionate, cheerful population of 9.292 billion Valrishmen 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dunskurth. The average income tax rate is 70.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Valrish economy, worth a remarkable 1,802 trillion Krownes a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 193,951 Krownes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Popular candidates who don't suffer last-second political scandals tend to get fished out of the Dunskurth River, the recital of citations that follows any political speech can be longer than the speech itself, 3D printed organs are a breath of new life for the sick and elderly, and refugees from other nations are flocking to Valrifell's border. Crime is totally unknown. Valrifell's national animal is the blood lion, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Symnaiganism.

Valrifell is ranked 60,660th in the world and 17th in The Exalted Lands for Largest Black Market, with 632 billion Standard Monetary Units.
