The Minecraft River Valley of A Salmon Named Harold is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by a salmon named Harold with an even hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 1.95 billion Salmonns enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central Hub. The average income tax rate is 88.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Salmonn economy, worth 275 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 141,087 IOU Cards, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People often feel unbalanced by their daily commute, the Twelve Steps To Logging Off is the most popular mobile download, A salmon named Harold's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, and the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass". 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 74,447th in the world and 2,816th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 158,723 Standard Monetary Units.
