The Confederacy of Kawastyselir is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.036 billion Kawas 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, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Waysir. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The large but sluggish Kawan economy, worth 915 trillion Kastels a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 65,227 Kastels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A rolling news ticker tape of disclaimers runs across the bottom of the screen on all TV shows, the horniness of the great-horned Owl is considered a national priority, five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, and hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kawastyselir's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kawastyselir is ranked 204,758th in the world and 446th in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -39.03 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
