The Commonwealth of Qeta is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, digital currency, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 1.69 billion Qetans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Qetan economy, worth 419 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 248,476 Dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,986,824 per year while the poor average 7,279, a ratio of 272 to 1.

Leader is refusing to make decisions until the Moon is out of Capricorn, baby boys who pick up pink crayons are sent to a psychiatric ward, coffee-addicted citizens look forward to baristas getting their name wrong at local coffee shops, and skateparks can be found in every city. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Qeta's national animal is the lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Qeta is ranked 145,095th in the world and 33rd in Selene for Highest Poor Incomes, with 7,279.86 Standard Monetary Units.
