The Swagland of Qwas is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Bobby Swagoff with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.491 billion Qwasians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Spirituality, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of SwagLand. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Qwasian economy, worth 366 trillion SwagBucks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 147,066 SwagBucks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,327,353 per year while the poor average 1,981, a ratio of 670 to 1.

The military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists, adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, the booming slave trade is now government-funded, and the government is pouring billions into replacement brains. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Qwas's national animal is the Racoon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is SWAGGY SWAG.

Qwas is ranked 239,587th in the world and 10,665th in Chicken overlords for Most Beautiful Environments, with 5.3 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
