The Queendom of Valinaria is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Valinar von Valquinn with a fair hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, punitive income tax rates, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.419 billion Valinari 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Owl City. The average income tax rate is 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Valinar economy, worth a remarkable 1,177 trillion Valins a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 158,731 Valins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's an aura of pseudoscience around academia, escalators are avoided at all costs, every new toxic waste dump comes with a seal of approval from the government's science advisor, and prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valinaria's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Tattheism.

Valinaria is ranked 198,617th in the world and 36th in Lorania for Most Extreme, scoring 8.92 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
