The Armed Republic of Valshire is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its closed borders, barren, inhospitable landscape, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 622 million Valshireans 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 Industry, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phantelaware. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 31.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Valshirean economy, worth 63.8 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 102,625 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

Insurance companies charge extortionate premiums to cover homes near waterways, sexually-starved male dinosaurs terrorise tourists during weekly breakouts from Mesozoic Park, monster hunters with oversized swords roam the land, and students do more community service than homework. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valshire's national animal is the elephant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Valshire is ranked 7,979th in the world and 263rd in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 320.54 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
