The Federal Republic of Valujo is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 497 million Valujans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 Tririvero. The average income tax rate is 47.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Valujan economy, worth 34.5 trillion Spesmiloj a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 69,511 Spesmiloj, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Restaurants are required to specify whether their toilet paper was made in Valujo, EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, former gun owners are finding that brandishing paintball guns isn't as satisfying as the real thing, and protests are legal but strictly supervised. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valujo's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Valujo is ranked 50,579th in the world and 35th in The Kodiak Republic for Nudest, with 204.75 cheeks per square mile.
