The Commonwealth of Requand is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.425 billion Requans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phenna. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Requan economy, worth a remarkable 1,955 trillion Fentoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 207,468 Fentoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sex changes are routinely performed at Requand's hospitals, cassocked priests and choirboys believe that what happens behind closed doors stays behind closed doors, flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug, and people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight. Crime is totally unknown. Requand's national animal is the Butterfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Requand is ranked 285th in the world and 4th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 16,968.54 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
