The Szhōuan Territory of Qastari is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Ariya Khassan al-Mareqi with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, cynical population of 5.268 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, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Defense, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Drako. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Qastarian economy, worth 918 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 174,427 Qastari Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

High-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, the nation's black ops are starting to get on people's nerves, Ariya Khassan al-Mareqi's speeches are beloved by insomniacs, and the nation was recently voted "most likely to betray its allies". 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 13,129th in the world and 5th in Selene for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 77.49 Workforce Participation Rate.
