The Szhōuan Territory of Qastari is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Ariya Khassan al-Mareqi with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and smutty television. The compassionate, cynical population of 5.835 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 is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Drako. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Qastarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,047 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 179,452 Qastari Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world, blood stains the floors of the execution room and the hands of the state, and anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card. 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 13,260th in the world and 2nd in Selene for Highest Economic Output, with 1,047 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
