The Republic of Qastari is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Ariya Mareqi with an even hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 10.281 billion Qastarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Industry, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Drako. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Qastarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,996 trillion Qastari Dollars 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 Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 194,149 Qastari Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The navy is hoping to hear the enemy shout "you sank my battleship!", politicians frequently make unusual poses during speeches in hopes of inspiring the next internet fad, the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, and enemy agents are generally eliminated with extreme prejudice. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Qastari's national animal is the Snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Qastari is ranked 1,799th in the world and 1st in Selene for Most Developed, scoring 97.87 on the Human Development Index.
