The Confederacy of Kawastyselir is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Web of Chiefs with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, compulsory vegetarianism, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.841 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 99.0%.

The large but sluggish Kawan economy, worth 898 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 60,521 Kastels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene, kids laugh off vandalism and arson as "just fun", birth rates have hit an all-time low, and it is illegal to have the wrong clock time showing on your microwave oven. 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 1,128th in the world and 21st in Forest for Most Influential, scoring 81,214 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
