The Kingdom of Valoptia is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, keen interest in outer space, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 367 million Valoptians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Administration, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Osearwynn. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.2%.

The strong Valoptian economy, worth 40.4 trillion pounds 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, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. 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 110,041 pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 388,142 per year while the poor average 22,567, a ratio of 17.2 to 1.

Military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft, the military will start wars with other nations on a lark, 90% of active duty VAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones, and confused-looking pigeons slide gently off frictionless window ledges. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valoptia's national animal is the goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Valoptia is ranked 153,217th in the world and 962nd in The Communist Bloc for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 821.85 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
