The Republic of Qastari is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Ariya Khassan al-Mareqi with an iron fist, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, frequent executions, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 8.224 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 Administration, Industry, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Drako. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Qastarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,587 trillion Qastari Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 193,040 Qastari Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Airplane passenger seat sizes and ticket prices are both first-class, traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky, and employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Qastari is ranked 9,571st in the world and 1st in Selene for Highest Economic Output, with 1,587 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
