The Confederacy of Kawastyselir is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Web of Chiefs with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.11 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 1,195 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 65,996 Kastels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients. 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 14,496th in the world and 34th in Forest for Most Income Equality, scoring 85.73 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
