The Unified Democratic States of Valdwall is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Sydney Cole with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, frequent executions, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.336 billion Valdwallians 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 Industry, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Redoubt. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Valdwallian economy, worth 192 trillion E Currencies a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 82,522 E Currencies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Workers have their fruitcake and eat it too, divorce lawyers are found begging on the streets, sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming, and anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valdwall's national animal is the Forest Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Valdwall is ranked 142,700th in the world and 5,680th in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -7.62 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
