The Queendom of Thorvel is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Marie III with an even hand, and notable for its fear of technology, free-roaming dinosaurs, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 17.574 billion Thorvelers are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The minute, moralistic government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of 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. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Thorveler economy, worth a remarkable 2,911 trillion Golden crowns a year, is highly specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Basket Weaving, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 165,678 Golden crowns, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 475,702 per year while the poor average 45,884, a ratio of 10.4 to 1.

Calling out of the blue has become taboo, the nation's school children are fluent in Klingon but lack basic mathematical skills, ministers browse Alright! magazine for fashion tips, and newspapers print only headlines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. 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 36,816th in the world and 154th in Forest for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero valid endorsements.
