The Luminous Republic of New Quanta is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Prime Mininster Stone with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.029 billion New Quantians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tau. The average income tax rate is 38.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Quantian economy, worth a remarkable 3,936 trillion Quantum Ducats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 280,589 Quantum Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, foreign musicians that Lord Prime Mininster Stone dislikes are turned away at the border, and the nation has nearly as many history museums as New Quantians. Crime is totally unknown. New Quanta's national animal is the Isometric Sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Quanta is ranked 225,085th in the world and 8,057th in The East Pacific for Most Conservative, scoring 19.46 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
