The Honorable Republic of Kwaj is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Amata Kabua with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.753 billion Kwajers 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 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 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Kwajian economy, worth a remarkable 1,970 trillion Gold Coins a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 202,008 Gold Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Solving crossword puzzles requires fluency in at least five languages, calling dibs is an unalienable right, hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead", and anti-government web sites are springing up. 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 247,297th in the world and 9,634th in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.09 weapons per person.
