The Republic of Qep is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Joe Mack with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.408 billion Qeppians 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 enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mackopolis. The average income tax rate is 75.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Qeppian economy, worth 104 trillion Pennies 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 74,503 Pennies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow, creating cardboard imitations of missiles is a new top-secret military project, vacationers and business travelers are often warned that they may lose the right to vote if they spend too much time overseas, and passive-aggressive congratulations cards inform mums-to-be that their pregnancy is their greatest achievement in life. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Qep's national animal is the Chicken, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Mackism.

Qep is ranked 138,686th in the world and 3,041st in The North Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 7,203.68 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
