The Minecraft River Valley of A Salmon Named Harold is a massive, genial nation, ruled by a salmon named Harold with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and daily referendums. The compassionate, cheerful population of 1.962 billion Salmonns are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central Hub. The average income tax rate is 89.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Salmonn economy, worth 279 trillion IOU Cards a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 142,445 IOU Cards, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Constipated disaster survivors are rapidly learning that MRE is short for "Meal Requiring Enemas", the NHS is snowed under by requests for crisper ciabatta and tenderer tagliatelle, many parents are becoming frustrated with their children's choices in spouses, and tourists avoid using the nation's bugged phones and monitored internet. Crime is totally unknown. A Salmon Named Harold's national animal is the Salmon, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is the questioning of string cheese.

A Salmon Named Harold is ranked 5,304th in the world and 318th in The North Pacific for Best Weather, with 299 Meters Of Sunlight.
