Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Community of Quatroville is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 2.983 billion Quatrovilleans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the city of Quatroville. The average income tax rate is 73.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Quatrovillean economy, worth 249 trillion Quats a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 83,719 Quats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities, the nation's taxpayers pay for foreign government's extravagances, the leading national news source is 'my cousin Billy-Bob on MyFace', and elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-Quat mansions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Quatroville's national animal is the Ant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Quatroville is ranked 20,878th in the world and 936th in Balder for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 198 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
