The Wicca Queendom of Quartzinne is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Amélie Poulain with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.927 billion Quartzinnette 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 prioritizes Education, with Environment, Industry, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vogue Elle. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Quartzeninne economy, worth a remarkable 1,885 trillion Quashions a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 172,515 Quashions, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Amélie Poulain's webseries about the alleged hauntings of Vogue Elle generates millions of views, the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage, the ongoing space elevator construction project has elevated the national debt to all new levels, and movies depict muscle-bound women kicking down a titanium door to carry hysterical men to safety. Crime is totally unknown. Quartzinne's national animal is the Rosy Maple Moth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Fashionism.

Quartzinne is ranked 175,214th in the world and 521st in Europeia for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -2.05 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
