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 remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, digital currency, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 7.34 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 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 4.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Vavalian economy, worth a remarkable 1,310 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 frequent. Average income is an impressive 178,536 Vavalian Gold Coins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 737,290 per year while the poor average 28,423, a ratio of 25.9 to 1.

Legions of police officers force people to move into massive urban apartments, healthcare funding has been cut, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, and the lowest age at which one can marry has been recently lowered to 12. 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 2nd in The Commonwealth of Kings and 5,701st in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 8 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
