The Bleeding-Heart Syndicalists of Qaz is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its unlimited-speed roads, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.037 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 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Qazian economy, worth a remarkable 1,135 trillion bitcoins 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 225,360 bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

High school band practice is often crashed by technicolor-clad ravers, a degree in Leader Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers, no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, and the "feminist protest" defence is increasingly common for cases of armed robbery. Crime is totally unknown. Qaz's national animal is the ghost, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Qaz is ranked 138,057th in the world and 7,054th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -61.78 on the Rand Index.
