The Kingdom of Valatic Ash is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Cassiel with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 2.861 billion Valatic Ashians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mount Ash. The average income tax rate is 84.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Valatic Ashian economy, worth 288 trillion rubles a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 100,881 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, politicians are often seen attending regional history classes at primary schools within their constituencies, 4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days', and being impolite in public is punishable by heavy fines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valatic Ash's national animal is the tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is None.

Valatic Ash is ranked 95,776th in the world and 4,915th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 61.33 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
