The Unified States of Qaaida is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Charlie Toumazos with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.159 billion Qaaidans 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 government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blue Village. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Qaaidan economy, worth 544 trillion Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 105,467 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post, jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, and the government is constantly producing new maps to accommodate the continual renaming of cities. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Qaaida's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Qaaida is ranked 201,306th in the world and 128th in The League of Conservative Nations for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -14.07 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
