The Federal Ocean Republic of Qawe is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Caeruleum Nebula with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.693 billion Qaweans 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Qandende Gejopla. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Qawerian economy, worth 368 trillion monis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 136,952 monis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military has forsaken terrestrial warfare, years of counter-terrorism planning are foiled by small details, the government tells its citizens to 'forgive and forget', and the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Qawe's national animal is the water wheat giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Qawe is ranked 7,291st in the world and 245th in the South Pacific for Safest, scoring 123.38 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
