The Loquacious Bodacious Colony of Kumquat Cove is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Tangerina Pulusan with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 14.163 billion Kumquat Coveans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Environment, although Industry and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lychee. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Kumquat Covean economy, worth a remarkable 2,074 trillion juuts a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Gambling, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 146,486 juuts, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 424,241 per year while the poor average 40,083, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.

In a desperate bid for cheap airfare Kumquat Coveans can be seen jogging in a rubber suit just before flying, Jennifer Government is a bestseller, getting an infected tattoo is considered a rite of passage in Kumquat Cove, and families are left homeless as entire suburbs are bulldozed on the whim of tribal chiefs. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Kumquat Cove's national animal is the aye aye, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kumquat Cove is ranked 61,417th in the world and 22nd in Libertatem for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 3,230.95 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
