The Queen's State of Quague is a gargantuan, orderly nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 25.183 billion Quagueans 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Quaguean economy, worth 401 trillion betales a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Automobile Manufacturing industry. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 15,958 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military spending is on the increase, all forms of advertising are banned, political activists are routinely executed, and eight year-olds with lemonade stands have been known to be locked up on charges of embezzlement. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Quague's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Quague is ranked 203,582nd in the world and 5th in Republic of Congo for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 601.46 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
