The Holy Black Nationstates of Kwaj is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Amata Kabua with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.021 billion Kwajians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coral Sands. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Kwajian economy, worth a remarkable 2,189 trillion Gold Coins a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 198,637 Gold Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied Atomic Dragon, one of the nation's leading exports is empty platitudes, and graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kwaj's national animal is the Atomic Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Glowing Atomic Cloud.

Kwaj is ranked 268,633rd in the world and 13,876th in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.32 crimes per hour.
