The Empire of Valcouria is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Constantine I with an iron fist, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, avowedly heterosexual populace, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 19.134 billion Valcourians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bainbridge. The average income tax rate is 6.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Valcourian economy, worth a remarkable 7,383 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 385,861 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments, rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, it's harder to qualify for IVF than for a good university, and stolen Reuben sandwiches are met with detailed and thorough police investigations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valcouria's national animal is the White-tailed Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Valcouria is ranked 101,961st in the world and 115th in Anteria for Most Extreme, scoring 19.25 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
