The Most Blessed State of Inquista is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Archbishop of Inquista with a fair hand, and notable for its public floggings, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 24.682 billion Inquistans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Spirituality, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Dominico. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Inquistan economy, worth an astonishing 12,540 trillion Inquistoes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 508,097 Inquistoes, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,268,436 per year while the poor average 32,019, a ratio of 102 to 1.

The experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Black Swan Dung" has been declared a national treasure, it is customary to begin the summer with a fasting ritual in which people eat nothing but kumquat smoothies, blackface performers claim they are being deliberately ironic, and the government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Inquista's national animal is the Black Swan, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Inquistan Orthodoxy.

Inquista is ranked 157th in the world and 1st in European Union for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 3.27 million Standard Monetary Units.
