Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Kwaj is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Amata Kabua with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.028 billion Kwajers 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 medium-sized, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ebeye. The average income tax rate is 73.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Kwajian economy, worth 129 trillion Clams a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 125,991 Clams, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The World Republic Games have been won again by Kwaj as no other country cares enough to compete, elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-Clam mansions, people can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler', and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kwaj's national animal is the Hermit Crab, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Kwaj is ranked 55,030th in the world and 2,644th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 160,549.75 Standard Monetary Units.
