The Allied States of De Quay is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The chair of The Elect Of Nine with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism. Its hard-nosed population of 7.577 billion have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Healthcare and Commerce are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ferndale. The average income tax rate is 92%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, prime picnicking sites are being paved over in the name of progress, the government has enacted freedom of information, and children listen incredulously when their grandparents explain what a "running river" is. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown. De Quay's national animal is the naked pygmy mole rat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Reformed Violetism, and its currency is the quid.

De Quay is ranked 4,540th in The East Pacific and 122,947th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with -99 Whatever.
