Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Queen's State of Quab is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of prisons, and absence of drug laws. The democratic population of 15.795 billion Quabians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Education, Welfare, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Law & Order and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 6.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Quabian economy, worth 690 trillion betales a year, is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 43,695 betales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been recorded, the government is avowedly atheist, and Quab has designated Capital Heights as its capital city. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Quab's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Quab is ranked 87,775th in the world and 1,029th in Ancient Lands for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 63.56 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
