The Commonwealth of Qaskura is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Xettaiks with an even hand, and remarkable for its closed borders, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 4.213 billion Qaskurans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Dark Carnival. The average income tax rate is 70.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Qaskuran economy, worth 558 trillion Bitcoins a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 132,506 Bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Preschoolers practice disarming active shooters before naptime, there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, male med students learning female anatomy do so with their eyes tightly closed, and school children asked "what is two times two?" are likely to form a symposium to discuss how different answers make them feel. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Qaskura's national animal is the Big Foot, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Juggalo.

Qaskura is ranked 23,260th in the world and 1st in Advent Dawn for Lowest Crime Rates, with 78.13 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
