The United Technocratic States of Valensi is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Chancellor Bahaghari with an even hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, public floggings, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, humorless population of 8.404 billion Valensians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ai Saichen. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Valensian economy, worth a remarkable 2,783 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 331,225 Valens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

An increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, the prevalence of circular logic frequently renders parliamentary observers dizzy, and the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 155,893rd in the world and 21st in CISB for Most Politically Free, scoring 49.33 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
