The Portable Air Cooler of Requelizza is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Waughin Jarth with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.459 billion Requelizzians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Requantice. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Requelish economy, worth 424 trillion Platinas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 122,765 Platinas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, education is transforming people into first-rate snobs, the population's jaw muscles put sharks to shame, and government ministers sport new billboards that read 'Will Trade Votes for Private Members' Bill Support'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Requelizza's national animal is the Blue Hedgehog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Corn Kernel Allocation.

Requelizza is ranked 165,797th in the world and 226th in Thaecia for Rudest Citizens, with 37.63 Insults Per Minute.
