Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Qvait is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Chancellor Margaret Harrison with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 11.227 billion Qvaiticans 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stockholm. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Qvaitican economy, worth a remarkable 2,741 trillion Pacific credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 244,213 Pacific credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, drug distribution is tightly controlled by the government, bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, and people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Qvait's national animal is the spinner dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Qvait is ranked 136,821st in the world and 6,389th in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 38.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
