The Fiefdom of Qiang Garrua is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 6.94 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 receive no funds. 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 2,946 trillion Won a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 424,584 Won, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,021,779 per year while the poor average 19,715, a ratio of 153 to 1.

Wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, amusement park rides frequently collapse due to lack of maintenance, and orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step. 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 232,212th in the world and 6,056th in the Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring -30.98 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
