The United Socialist States of Montreal-Quebec is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its absence of drug laws, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.696 billion Quebecois 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexandria. The average income tax rate is 86.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Montreal-Quebecian economy, worth 212 trillion Francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 125,439 Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All recreational drugs are legal, students learn how to disarm mines before understanding basic arithmetic, wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps, and people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Montreal-Quebec's national animal is the Black Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Montreal-Quebec is ranked 161,206th in the world and 6,552nd in the West Pacific for Most Devout, with 2.95 Prayers Per Hour.
