The People's Republic of Qiyi Guo is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical, humorless population of 1.87 billion Qiyi Guoans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kexue Cheng. The average income tax rate is 81.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Qiyi Guoan economy, worth 247 trillion Yuan a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 132,326 Yuan, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Printing out government documents requires the approval of at least three admins, politicians accost strangers in the street to ask their problems, astronauts take one small step for Qiyi Guo and one giant step backward from confrontation, and the nation has nearly as many history museums as Qiyi Guoans. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Qiyi Guo's national animal is the Kiwi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Qiyi Guo is ranked 172,851st in the world and 91st in Social Technocratic Union for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 24,480.49 Standard Monetary Units.
