The Fiefdom of Qiang Garrua is a colossal, cultured nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, public floggings, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.205 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, although Education, Defense, and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality are ignored. 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 2,529 trillion Won a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 407,625 Won, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,350,136 per year while the poor average 10,410, a ratio of 321 to 1.

Leader's Twitcher account is typically used to share elephant memes rather than government policy, subsidisation of Big Pharma has stopped many corporate executives from having to sell their second homes, the nation faces constant invasions by foreign boy bands, and the realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools. 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 611th in the world and 9th in the Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 417.51 on the Hayek Index.
