The Commonwealth of Requand is a colossal, safe nation, renowned for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.565 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 1,777 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 207,537 Fentoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In a baffling press conference Leader proudly dismantled a broken door, international television adverts praise the nation as a worker's paradise, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, and a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts. Crime is totally unknown. Requand's national animal is the Butterfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Requand is ranked 1,266th in the world and 8th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 2,787.36 Tourists Per Hour.
