The Christmas Golden Republic of Qpwo is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, complete lack of prisons, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 16.42 billion Qpwoans are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Spirituality, although Industry is also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Qpwo City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Qpwoan economy, worth a remarkable 4,152 trillion Gold Qpwoes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an amazing 252,879 Gold Qpwoes, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,146,910 per year while the poor average 5,367, a ratio of 400 to 1.

The line of people waiting for a visa interview in front of foreign embassies is typically a mile long, the hit new medical TV show "Home" prominently features the brand of painkiller the lead doctor is addicted to, the rainbow assortment of chemicals in the water has turned the frogs gay, and the government regrets to say that it is forced to make cuts to citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Qpwo's national animal is the Monster Ghost Rabitt, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a major religion.

Qpwo is ranked 17,318th in the world and 1st in Silent for Most Influential, scoring 2,772 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
