The Holy Pirate Shogunate of Vaval is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Shogun Yoshimori Mori with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.754 billion Vavalanese are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Defence, Religion & Spirituality, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vavalia. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Information Technology.

A National Academy regulates grammar and usage, urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, the people are furious with the government for allowing citizens to be executed for petty crimes in foreign countries, and government officials are held to the highest standard of morality. Crime is crippling. Vaval's national animal is the Prussian Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, its national religion is Southern Baptist Christianity, and its currency is the Vavalian Gold Coin.

Vaval is ranked 30th in The Commonwealth of Kings and 117,114th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring -25 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
