Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Holy Pirate Shogunate of Vaval is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Shogun Yoshimori Mori with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 8.075 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 government prioritizes Defense, although Spirituality is also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vavalia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Vavalian economy, worth a remarkable 1,477 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. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 183,028 Vavalian Gold Coins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 770,102 per year while the poor average 28,228, a ratio of 27.3 to 1.

The colors pink and purple are banned from military unit insignia, internet service is too costly for normal people to purchase, a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, and the government has awarded itself a month-long holiday to celebrate its achievements. Crime is all-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 13th in The Commonwealth of Kings and 115,836th in the world for Most Pacifist, scoring -1,228 on the Lennon-Springsteen Scale.
