Quark Unit

Population548 million

CapitalJiben Lizi


The United Kingdom of Quark Unit is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 548 million Quarks 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, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jiben Lizi. The average income tax rate is 41.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Quark economy, worth 76.2 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 139,051 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

A faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy', and the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Quark Unit's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Quark Unit is ranked 59,451st in the world and 2,319th in The East Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 1,891.09 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
