Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Pirate Shogunate of Vaval is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Shogun Yoshimori Mori with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 8.744 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, pro-business 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 2.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Vavalian economy, worth a remarkable 1,678 trillion Vavalian Gold Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 191,955 Vavalian Gold Coins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 935,084 per year while the poor average 22,707, a ratio of 41.2 to 1.

It turns out that money can buy you happiness, the industries of Vaval are coughing all the way to the bank, the government has completely eliminated all childcare programs, and people say that smog must be good for you because of its healthy green colour. Crime is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Vaval's national animal is the Prussian Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Southern Baptist Christianity.

Vaval is ranked 555th in the world and 1st in Polinco for Most Devout, with 11,081.36 Prayers Per Hour.
