The Republic of Qalis is a huge, genial nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 608 million Quidoes enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Quruluqi. The average income tax rate is 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Qalisian economy, worth 20.0 trillion Yayas 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 Basket Weaving, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 32,947 Yayas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, televisions are often seized to pay for overdue television license fees, a common response to government PSAs is "well, DUH, obviously", and the government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Qalis's national animal is the Starfish, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.
