The Honorable Republic of Kwaj is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Amata Kabua with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.334 billion Kwajers 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 government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coral Sands. The average income tax rate is 97.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Kwajian economy, worth a remarkable 1,024 trillion Gold Bars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 192,105 Gold Bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The comic book series 'Amata Kabua and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, and citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kwaj's national animal is the Hermit Crab, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is The Almighty Atomic Overlord.

Kwaj is ranked 651st in the world and 43rd in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 97.94 on the Human Development Index.
