The Community of Shangri-La Valley is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls and smutty television. The compassionate population of 656 million Shangri-La Valleyians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, liberal government is primarily concerned with Education, although Welfare, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while Public Transport isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dream City. The average income tax rate is 21.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Shangri-La Valleyian economy, worth 49.3 trillion Zuzzes a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 75,128 Zuzzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, and re-education centers are being added to most prisons. Crime is totally unknown. Shangri-La Valley's national animal is the Serval, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shangri-La Valley is ranked 91,904th in the world and 39th in The Region That Has No Big Banks for Highest Economic Output, with 49.3 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
