The frighteningly efficient Valentian economy, worth a remarkable 3,129 trillion Universal and Reliable Valentian Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal.

Average income is an amazing 342,783 Universal and Reliable Valentian Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, all guns must be registered, and garishly-decorated government buildings are being hailed as the height of 'religious nouveau'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valentine Z's national animal is the Very Big Katten Monsters van de Wereld, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Theravada Buddhism Among Many Others.

Valentine Z is ranked 28,234th in the world and 526th in The North Pacific for Largest Populations, with 9.13 billion Capita.
