The Fiefdom of Qiang Garrua is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, flagrant waste-dumping, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 7.429 billion Garruans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education, Defense, and Administration also on the agenda, while Environment and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anxiangra. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Garruan economy, worth a remarkable 3,239 trillion Won a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 436,074 Won, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,514,861 per year while the poor average 12,293, a ratio of 285 to 1.

Behind every great person are three dozen other people passing great memos, school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time, factory workers offered 20-hour shifts are expected to thank their bosses for the wonderful opportunity, and citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Qiang Garrua's national animal is the elephant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Qiang Garrua is ranked 54,709th in the world and 1,470th in the Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 26.29 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
