The Jingoistic States of Quaalude Tea is a very large, orderly nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 185 million Quaalude Teans 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 enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 72.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Quaalude Tean economy, worth 8.40 trillion tranqs 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 a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Book Publishing, Soda Sales, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 45,426 tranqs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's sophisticated talk of revolution within the ever-expanding mining colonies, it ain't easy to be green enough to be imported into Quaalude Tea, romantic sunsets are no longer interrupted by explosions and monstrous roars, and country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Quaalude Tea's national animal is the sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Quaalude Tea is ranked 204,344th in the world and 2nd in Crowwood for Rudest Citizens, with 15 Insults Per Minute.
