The Somewhat Unfriendly Land of Kwaj is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Amata Kabua with an even hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, smutty television, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.271 billion Kwajians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coral Sands. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Kwajian economy, worth a remarkable 2,314 trillion Clams 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 an impressive 174,369 Clams, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Recognised healthcare professionals treat diabetes with a grain of sugar in a barrel of water, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, and occupational wage levels are based on a crumpled napkin authored by a legendary Coral Sands bus driver. 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 Hermit Crab, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is The Almighty Atomic Overlord.

Kwaj is ranked 310,885th in the world and 9,501st in The North Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -54 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
