The United States of Qedril is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by REDACTED with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.837 billion Qedrilians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Qrawell. The average income tax rate is 93.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Qedrilian economy, worth a remarkable 1,568 trillion Doublons Électriques a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 324,281 Doublons Électriques, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Taxpayers cringe whenever someone brings up the Former Antagonist Reparations Treaty, using "inspect element" is grounds for espionage charges, political activists are routinely executed, and nations that kill a Qedrilian can expect a strongly worded letter. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Qedril's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Qedril is ranked 73,959th in the world and 83rd in Anteria for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 5.08 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
