The Queendom of Thorvel is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Marie III with a fair hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, ban on automobiles, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 13.487 billion Thorvelers enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Administration, although Industry is also considered important, while Social Policy and Healthcare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jensigaršr. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Thorveler economy, worth a remarkable 2,064 trillion Golden crowns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Cheese Exports, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 153,072 Golden crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Marie III's bedroom, government ministers sport new billboards that read 'Will Trade Votes for Private Members' Bill Support', and oddly simian-looking religious thugs beat up anyone who suggests humans are related to monkeys. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Thorvel's national animal is the horse, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Medieval roman catholicism.

Thorvel is ranked 117,772nd in the world and 271st in Forest for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.94 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
