The Federal Republic of Qavria is a large, socially progressive nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 95 million Qavrics enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 27.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Qavrian economy, worth 4.24 trillion schillings a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 44,660 schillings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.
Belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace', builders across Qavria are blocked up with orders for new public loos, every week is blindness awareness week, and recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Qavria's national animal is the Walrus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
