The Confederacy of Kawastyselir is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.958 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, 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 98.8%.

The large but sluggish Kawan economy, worth 904 trillion Kastels a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. 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 64,827 Kastels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, arthritic surgeons with tremulous fingers reassure patients that they are in safe hands, hungry families offer spare change to their social workers, and sales of trenchcoats are on the rise. 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 2,969th in the world and 43rd in Forest for Longest Average Lifespans, with 93.22 Years.
