The Commonwealth of Requand is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, daily referendums, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.681 billion Requans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phenna. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Requan economy, worth 942 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 201,253 Fentoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world, employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, Requand is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, and the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster. Crime is totally unknown. Requand's national animal is the Butterfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Requand is ranked 16,922nd in the world and 79th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Secular, with 61.35 Atheism Rate.
