The United Democratic Republic of Kawther is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Yassir Hussein with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 10.814 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Commerce, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Quther United City. The average income tax rate is 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Tourism and Soda Sales.

The Kawther Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, anti-government web sites are springing up, local executives are seen on the corner with cardboard signs reading "will oppress the masses for food", and politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kawther's national animal is the Andulasian Horse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Islam, and its currency is the Quth.

Kawther is ranked 16th in United Empire of Islam and 16,245th in the world for Best Weather, with 44 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
