Merryland is an enchanted country ruled by a Queen and consisting of seven valleys connected by archways through which a river flows.
Before the entrance to the first valley is a Stony Vale where the Watch-Dog of Merryland lives. It is his duty to prevent visitors from entering Merryland. The vale is surrounded by mountains, and is thickly covered with stones. Nothing green grows there.
The first valley is the Valley of Clowns. The inhabitants are clowns with fancifully painted faces and a variety of costumes, and all are entertaining tumblers and jugglers. Flippityflop, the Prince of Clowns, rules the first valley under the gracious favor of the Queen.
The Valley of Dolls is the fourth and most important valley because it is the home of the Queen of Merryland. It is surrounded by a high wall which runs along the riverbank, and the gate is guarded by wooden soldiers.
The seventh and last valley is the Valley of Lost Things. The river that flows from this final valley was blocked by the Queen after Dot and Tot ended their visit to the country. (Dot and Tot of Merryland)
