The Queendom of Thorvel is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Marie III with a fair hand, and notable for its aversion to nipples, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 14.339 billion Thorvelers are known throughout the region for their efficiency and work ethic, as well as their general suspicion of leisure.

The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Administration, with Social Policy and Healthcare not 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 2,217 trillion Golden crowns a year, is highly 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 154,655 Golden crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The national government has been dissolved by revolutionary insurgents, children are raised bilingual from an early age, the government has enacted freedom of information, and male politicians lose their jobs for staring too long at their female counterparts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. 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 230,016th in the world and 1,193rd in Forest for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -25.69 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
