The Commonwealth of Qoarleng is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Vervain Vance and Quail Quinster with a fair hand, and notable for its lack of airports, digital currency, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.019 billion Qoarlengians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Qoarla Lumpur. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Qoarlengian economy, worth a remarkable 1,139 trillion shillings 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 226,998 shillings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention, country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, and the dartboard at the Qoarlengian Cancer Research Charity bears a picture of Vervain Vance and Quail Quinster's face. Crime is totally unknown. Qoarleng's national animal is the sphinx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Qoarleng is ranked 273,160th in the world and 11,896th in the South Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -17.89 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
