The Empire of Quark Unit is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Liang Proton with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.144 billion Quarks hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jiben Lizi. The average income tax rate is 59.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Quark economy, worth 391 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 182,409 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Soldiers on first dates introduce themselves only by their ranks and serial numbers, history textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students, lending money has become a major liability, and hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Quark Unit's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Quark Unit is ranked 46,871st in the world and 2,236th in Balder for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 59.54 Effective Tax Rate.
