The Free Land of Qaeila is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 374 million Qaeilans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.0%.

The strong Qaeilan economy, worth 23.4 trillion sepils a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 62,584 sepils, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 221,090 per year while the poor average 12,804, a ratio of 17.3 to 1.

The mentally ill are given high powered automatic weapons for "catharsis therapy", fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, the flight attendant who draws the short straw is on "cockpit bucket duty", and Qaeilan scientists are mixing chewing tobacco with bacon flavouring in an attempt to craft the perfect male snack. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Qaeila's national animal is the Unicorn, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Qaeila is ranked 195,393rd in the world and 8,002nd in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -5.1 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
