The Holy Empire of Qassadia is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 538 million Qassadians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carthage. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 26.6%.

The frighteningly efficient a Qassadian economy, worth 61.2 trillion Levs a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 113,703 Levs, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 777,784 per year while the poor average 5,996, a ratio of 129 to 1.

The government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, political activists are routinely executed, hand-to-hand combat experience is udderly essential for all dairy ranchers, and napalm is the tool of choice for disabling eco-unfriendly forestry operations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Qassadia's national animal is the Fire Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Qassadia is ranked 189,521st in the world and 84th in Krillin for Most Secular, with 13.1 Atheism Rate.
