The Confederacy of Kawastyselir is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The Web of Chiefs with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.082 billion Kawas are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Waysir. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The enormous but sluggish Kawan economy, worth a remarkable 1,114 trillion Kastels a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 69,321 Kastels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is giving peace a chance, escalators are avoided at all costs, illegal hunting is rife after veganism was recently made compulsory, and the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kawastyselir's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kawastyselir is ranked 226,587th in the world and 465th in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -40 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
