The Blue Holy World Republic of Valerity is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Astra Amaris with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.156 billion Valerityians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Genesis. The average income tax rate is 72.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Valerityian economy, worth 119 trillion Vals a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 103,378 Vals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Astra Amaris is frequently seen begging critics to stop insulting the government, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, and politicians who misplace decimal points on expense reports are fired for gross incompetence. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valerity's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Valerian.

Valerity is ranked 240,340th in the world and 51st in The Blue Star Union for Most Armed, with 0.14 Weapons Per Person.
