The Szhōuan Territory of Qastari is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Ariya Khassan al-Mareqi with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, state-planned economy, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, cynical population of 4.744 billion Qastarians 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, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Defense, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Drako. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Qastarian economy, worth 820 trillion Qastari Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 172,900 Qastari Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", the banshee wail foretells skies of death, the song 'They Got an Awful Lot of Coffee in Qastari' is a smash hit, and military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Qastari's national animal is the Snake, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Qastari is ranked 161,375th in the world and 24th in Selene for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -18.22 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
