The Principality of Valhalla123 is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Harald Hardrada with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working population of 2.614 billion Valhalla123ians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asgard. The average income tax rate is 69.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Valhalla123ian economy, worth 402 trillion Runes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 154,124 Runes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned, banning party poppers has been a real party pooper, advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines, and Harald Hardrada's webseries about the alleged hauntings of Asgard generates millions of views. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valhalla123's national animal is the Arctic Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Heathenry.

Valhalla123 is ranked 12,358th in the world and 500th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 5,699.98 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
