The Empty Void of Q w e r t y is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Aluf with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, public floggings, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 19.943 billion Q w e r tians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of NORAD. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Q w e r t yian economy, worth a remarkable 2,864 trillion Denaris a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 143,630 Denaris, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Travelers are subject to extensive searches if beet stains are visible on their clothing, a recent "genocide prevention" campaign includes murdering children based on their DNA, more sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people, and the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Q w e r t y's national animal is the Hokie Bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Capitalism.

Q w e r t y is ranked 247,980th in the world and 10,729th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 50.85 percentage of bribes refused.
