The Queendom of Thorvel is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Marie III with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, lack of airports, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 13.956 billion Thorvelers are known throughout the region for their efficiency and work ethic, as well as their general suspicion of leisure.

The minute, moralistic, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Administration, with Spirituality and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Healthcare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jensigaršr. The average income tax rate is 1.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Thorveler economy, worth a remarkable 2,195 trillion Golden crowns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Cheese Exports, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 157,285 Golden crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, hell is not always other people, street crime is on the rise as police officers spend most of their time in prisons, and new treatments are rejected if they cannot be explained using only one-syllable words. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. 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 1,104th in the world and 7th in Forest for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 281.92 on the Hayek Index.
