The Queendom of Thorvel is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Marie III with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 12.882 billion Thorvelers are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The relatively small, moralistic, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Spirituality, with Administration, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Healthcare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jensigaršr. The average income tax rate is 7.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Thorveler economy, worth a remarkable 2,178 trillion Golden crowns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Basket Weaving, Cheese Exports, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 169,135 Golden crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

An aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time, shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, the serf suggestion box would work better if more serfs were literate, and Marie III's recent "I have a dream that we will fight them by raking muck on the beaches" speech seems a little derivative to many. Crime is well under control, 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 elk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Medieval roman catholicism.

Thorvel is ranked 183,869th in the world and 456th in Forest for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring -41.53 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
