The Federal Republic of The Quwatistan is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, avowedly heterosexual populace, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, devout population of 643 million Quwatistanians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Quwatabad. The average income tax rate is 84.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Quwatistanian economy, worth 76.2 trillion QKRS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 118,506 QKRS, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords, the wealthiest parts of the country receive the most government spending, and contestants on The Quwatistan's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Quwatistan's national animal is the Panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Quwatistan is ranked 31,084th in the world and 556th in the West Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 181.11 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
