The Queen's State of Kulspai is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Governor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 17.731 billion Kulspaians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and International Aid. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.0%.

The very strong Kulspaian economy, worth 848 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Furniture Restoration, and Retail. Average income is 47,859 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 325,387 per year while the poor average 2,571, a ratio of 126 to 1.

The Governor has just been declared ruler of Kulspai in an international press conference, none has been named as Kulspai's national religion, the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars, and astronomers are flocking to Kulspai to take advantage of its clear night skies. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Kulspai's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is none.

Kulspai is ranked 190,311th in the world and 7th in Angola for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 740.22 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
