The Holy Lucky Blue Skies of Valerievna is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Miss Bad Life Choices with an even hand, and notable for its teetotalling pirates, ban on automobiles, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 5.178 billion Peebbles are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Spirituality, Administration, and Education also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valerievna City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 52.1%.

The all-consuming Peebble economy, worth 859 trillion candy canes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 165,908 candy canes, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

A new apartment is worth a thousand betrayals, public shaming has become the favoured form of punishment, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, and the nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Valerievna's national animal is the monster, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Lynxism.

Valerievna is ranked 65,292nd in the world and 2,210th in Osiris for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 1,943.4 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
