The Union of Quartia and Karafuto is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lillin Nimagyŏ with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, compulsory vegetarianism, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 4.645 billion Quartians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Solbin. The average income tax rate is 83.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Quartia and Karafutoan economy, worth 423 trillion kallas 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 Tourism. Average income is 91,093 kallas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, political dissidents are cut off from essential services, the nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, and asking 'a penny for your thoughts?' draws law enforcement response. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Quartia and Karafuto's national animal is the Himalayan panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Confucianism.

Quartia and Karafuto is ranked 20,278th in the world and 16th in Libertarian Socialist Confederation for Lowest Crime Rates, with 81.56 law-abiding acts per hour.
