The Union of Quartia and Karafuto is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Lillan Nimagyŏ with a fair hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, keen interest in outer space, and public floggings. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.213 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, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Solbin. The average income tax rate is 75.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Quartia and Karafutoan economy, worth 193 trillion kallas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry. Average income is 60,280 kallas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace, most voters only see their chosen representative visit once every election cycle, and intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 222,599th in the world and 684th in The Communist Bloc for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -10.49 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
