The Holy Pirate Shogunate of Vaval is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Shogun Yoshimori Mori with an even hand, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, parental licensing program, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 6.995 billion Vavalanese are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vavalia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Vavalian economy, worth a remarkable 1,166 trillion Vavalian Gold Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 166,742 Vavalian Gold Coins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,062,389 per year while the poor average 10,784, a ratio of 98.5 to 1.

Children are regularly married to each other to secure business deals between families, the populace has developed a mortal fear of the woods, the booming slave trade is now government-funded, and the minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed. Crime is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Vaval's national animal is the Prussian Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Southern Baptist Christianity.

Vaval is ranked 1st in The Commonwealth of Kings and 765th in the world for Most Devout, scoring 295 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
