The Red High Athelingric of Valoptia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Leofric Frost with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, compulsory vegetarianism, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.908 billion 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, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Osearwynn. The average income tax rate is 99.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Valoptian economy, worth a remarkable 1,821 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 Book Publishing. 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 amazing 466,216 pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,325,349 per year while the poor average 130,922, a ratio of 10.1 to 1.

Atheists are heavily taxed, comic books avoid plot inconsistencies by removing the plot, the nation is under martial law, and loss of the ability to speak is a common affliction of the elderly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valoptia's national animal is the red panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Gnosticism.

Valoptia is ranked 205,403rd in the world and 1,229th in The Communist Bloc for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 640.3 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
