The Honorable Republic of Kwaj is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Amata Kabua with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.659 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 government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coral Sands. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Kwajian economy, worth a remarkable 1,701 trillion Gold Coins 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 196,479 Gold Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

History textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, Amata Kabua can often be seen hanging around playgrounds chatting with the kids, and heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste. 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 241,229th in the world and 9,182nd in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -554.32 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
