Quail Empire

Population279 million


The Republic of Quail Empire is a huge, safe nation, notable for its triple-decker prams, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 279 million Quail Empireans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 50.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Quail Empirean economy, worth 19.9 trillion Quails a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 71,177 Quails, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is now illegal for teens to view any sites except Club Kitten and My Little Donkey, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, groups of government workers are declared protected tribes if they venture too deep into the Capitol, and foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Quail Empire's national animal is the Quail, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Quail Empire is ranked 86,047th in the world and 3,778th in The East Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 65.52 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
