The Queendom of Thorvel is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Marie III with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, triple-decker prams, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 13.711 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 effectively ruled by the Department of Administration, with Spirituality and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Healthcare are ignored. 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 2,116 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 154,337 Golden crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities, the serf suggestion box would work better if more serfs were literate, armed police are cracking down on untaxed collectable-card-trading in local junior schools, and there are six more weeks of winter if a northerner sees her shadow. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious 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 7th in the world and 1st in Forest for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 35,943.57 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
