The Colony of Valtoss is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 25.44 billion Valtossians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 73.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Valtossian economy, worth 467 trillion Halicarnassuses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 18,361 Halicarnassuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elections have been outlawed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valtoss's national animal is the Charizard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Valtoss is ranked 150,155th in the world and 1st in The Kingdom of Hawaii for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 1,034.93 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
