The Holy Pirate Shogunate of Vaval is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Shogun Yoshimori Mori with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, flagrant waste-dumping, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 7.195 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 3.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Vavalian economy, worth a remarkable 1,251 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 173,916 Vavalian Gold Coins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 718,210 per year while the poor average 27,688, a ratio of 25.9 to 1.

The "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Vavalia Times is sold out, the religious lobby has the power of veto over health initiatives, prospective parents are cheering on the streets as they no longer need a license to have children, and disaster victims are viewed with disdain. 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 37th in The Commonwealth of Kings and 125,426th in the world for Healthiest Citizens, with -23 Standard Bananas Ingested per capita per day.
