|Capital||Ville de Québec|
|Leader||Premier Robert K Comeau|
The PDR of Québec of Central Arstotzka is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Premier Robert K Comeau with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, pith helmet sales, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.333 billion Québécois enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The enormous, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ville de Québec. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.
The frighteningly efficient Québécois economy, worth a remarkable 2,465 trillion Québécois Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 199,895 Québécois Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Engine room hooch is the drink of choice among the nation's navy, NPCs in MMORPGs regularly interrupt cutscenes with OOC reminders that they aren't real people, 9 out of 10 consumers think that vitamins can cure cancer, and children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Central Arstotzka's national animal is the Snowy Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is State Atheism.
