The Honorable Republic of Kwaj is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Amata Kabua with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.4 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 are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coral Sands. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Kwajian economy, worth a remarkable 1,423 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 192,337 Gold Bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, parents often leave their kids in the car while they attend mindfulness meditation sessions, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field. 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 218,664th in the world and 9,872nd in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -598.68 on the Hayek Index.
