The Honorable Republic of Kwaj is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Amata Kabua with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.981 billion Kwajers 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 large, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coral Sands. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Kwajian economy, worth a remarkable 1,349 trillion Gold Bars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 193,309 Gold Bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, parents often leave their kids in the car while they attend mindfulness meditation sessions, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kwaj's national animal is the Hermit Crab, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is The Almighty Atomic Overlord.

Kwaj is ranked 202,366th in the world and 9,448th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -19.65 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
