The Queendom of Thorvel is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Marie III with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, complete lack of public education, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 13.646 billion Thorvelers enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Administration, although Spirituality and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Healthcare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jensigaršr. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Thorveler economy, worth a remarkable 2,093 trillion Golden crowns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Cheese Exports, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 153,412 Golden crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Shelters struggle to keep up with the endless intake of stray animals, heirs who take too long in the bathroom are declared missing and presumed dead, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, and heretic deviants are free to practice their deviance outside of Thorvel. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Thorvel's national animal is the horse, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Medieval roman catholicism.

Thorvel is ranked 25,718th in the world and 72nd in Forest for Most Politically Free, scoring 80.19 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
