The Rogue Nation of Quwoe is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its parental licensing program, lack of airports, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 361 million Quwoeans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kalkowae. The average income tax rate is 56.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Quwoean economy, worth 21.7 trillion wrokes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 60,075 wrokes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, and Kalkowae spends billions upgrading public transport. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Quwoe's national animal is the Griffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Quwoe is ranked 79,907th in the world and 701st in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 21.2 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
