The Empire of Qtaria is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory military service and irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 109 million Qtarians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 11.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Qtarian economy, worth 5.69 trillion Qtarian talns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 52,185 Qtarian talns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

A large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway and the tenet of free speech is held dear. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Qtaria's national animal is the Qtarian hummingbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Qtaria is ranked 123,609th in the world and 5,090th in the South Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -4.47 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
