The State of Quaon is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Andrei Makarovitch Yanosky with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, anti-smoking policies, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 24.178 billion Quaonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kiev. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 42.0%.
The all-consuming Quaonian economy, worth a remarkable 3,359 trillion rubles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 138,960 rubles, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.
Wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable, popular websites like NationStates are blocked for "national security", and it is illegal to make racist remarks in public. Crime is totally unknown. Quaon's national animal is the owl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.
