The Island Nation of Kwanley is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Funky Kwan with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, enslaved workforce, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.831 billion kwanadian enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Kwancisco. The average income tax rate is 17.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kwanish economy, worth 304 trillion kwandollas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 166,101 kwandollas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Nine out of ten citizens of Kwanley answered 'nuclear safety inspector' when asked their occupation, Kwanish housewives become unusually flustered when thinking about Funky Kwan, Harry Potter conventions are closely watched by the government for any signs of 'dueling', and officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists. Crime is relatively low. Kwanley's national animal is the kwantalope, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kwanley is ranked 73,973rd in the world and 22nd in Taijitu for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 69.46 Workforce Participation Rate.
