Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empty Void of Q w e r t y is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Herr Aluf with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 12.714 billion Q w e r tians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of NORAD. The average income tax rate is 97.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Q w e r t yian economy, worth a remarkable 1,759 trillion Denaris a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 138,385 Denaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Prospective parents are cheering on the streets as they no longer need a license to have children, all writing must pass a censorship board before being allowed on the shelves, a new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, and NORAD's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Q w e r t y's national animal is the Hokie Bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Capitalism.

Q w e r t y is ranked 108,268th in the world and 5,103rd in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -3.16 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
