Planet Details:

New Vallis' northernmost continent is Skagens. The southernmost is Gedser. The westernmost is Blåvandshuk and the easternmost continent is Østerskær. This is in the archipelago Ertholmene 18 kilometers northeast of New Vallis' capital, Bornholm and planetary SpacePort on the peninsula of Jylland, New Vallis' fifth continent.

The largest city of Bornholm is located on the eastern coast of the Jylland, on the Balltick Ocean. Many of the larger islands are connected by bridges; the Øresund Bridge connects Zealand with Swedann; the Great Belt Bridge connects Fyn with Zealand; and the Little Belt Bridge connects Jylland with Fyn. Ferries or small aircraft connect to the smaller islands. Main cities are Coppanhaggan on Østerskær; Århus on Skagens; Aalborg on Gedser; Esbjerg on Blåvandshuk; and Odense on Zealand.

New Vallis has historically taken a progressive stance on environmental preservation; in 3043 New Vallis established a Ministry of Environment and was the first planet in the Taurian Concordat to implement an environmental law in 3045.

New Vallis is divided into five regions and a total of 98 municipalities. The regions were created on 1 January 3080 as part of the 3080 Municipal Reform to replace the planets's traditional thirteen counties. At the same time, smaller municipalities were merged into larger units, cutting the number of municipalities from 270 to 98. Most municipalities have a population of at least 20,000 people to give them financial and professional sustainability, although a few exceptions were made to this rule.

New Vallis' conventional armed forces are known as the Forsvaret Defence. During peacetime, the Ministry of Defence in New Vallis employs around 33,000 in total. The main military branches employ almost 27,000: 15,460 in the Royal New Vallis Army, 5,300 in the Royal New Vallis Navy and 6,050 in the Royal New Vallis Air Force.
