The United Technocratic States of Valensi is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Grand Marshall Sirius with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, humorless population of 5.368 billion Valensians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ai Saichen. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Valensian economy, worth a remarkable 1,592 trillion Valens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 296,617 Valens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Ai Saichen, Valensians incessantly needle their doctors for relief, if they thought anyone would listen the older generation would likely say that nobody listens to them any more, and police drones follow every suspected Peeping Tom. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valensi's national animal is the Tricorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Valensi is ranked 107,784th in the world and 24th in CISB for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 48.51 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
