The Holy Pirate Shogunate of Vaval is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Shogun Yoshimori Mori with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.414 billion Vavalanese are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

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.

Crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, the government is a clear-cut case of tyranny by majority, Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, and a large percentage of the poor live from cradle to grave in subterranean wage slavery. Crime is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Vaval's national animal is the Prussian Eagle, its national religion is Southern Baptist Christianity, and its currency is the Vavalian Gold Coin.

Vaval is ranked 1st in The Commonwealth of Kings and 890th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 11 on the Hayek Index.
