The People's Republic of Quanzo is a small, genial nation, renowned for its frequent executions, state-planned economy, and pith helmet sales. The quiet, industrious population of 26 million Quanzoans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 62.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The struggling Quanzoan economy, worth 504 billion quanzos 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 Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. 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 19,385 quanzos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bigtopian relations have become a minefield, the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, and unpopular politicians are often caught between a rock and a hard place. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Quanzo's national animal is the frog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Quanzo is ranked 130,474th in the world and 2nd in Quanzo for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 1,175.03 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
