The Tea-Drinking Commonwealth of Khwarezmia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Pithriqi III with an even hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 8.729 billion have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Qarezmiya. The average income tax rate is 90%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry.
Referenda are held for every conceivable government action, the people of Khwarezmia are renowned for their nihilistic attitudes, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Khwarezmia's radio stations, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Khwarezmia's national animal is the Orange Dwarf Yeti, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Khwarezmian Spoon.
