The Bleeding-Heart Syndicalists of Qaz is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.623 billion Qazians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Qakanda. The average income tax rate is 99.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Qazian economy, worth a remarkable 1,691 trillion credexes 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 amazing 255,446 credexes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools, self-driving cars obey the road rules even during emergencies, male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room, and teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank. Crime is totally unknown. Qaz's national animal is the narwhal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Qaz is ranked 19,180th in the world and 472nd in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 877.82223680452 Days.
