The Democratic States of Quebris is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Jack Cromwell with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.989 billion Quebrisans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Minence. The average income tax rate is 67.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Quebrisan economy, worth 315 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 158,624 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Thousands of picky mothers-in-law have been recruited to serve as even pickier cookery instructors, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, soldiers are equipped with multi-million Dollar battlesuits, and only fully-fledged members of MENSA are allowed to vote. Crime is totally unknown. Quebris's national animal is the Squid, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Quebris is ranked 29,414th in the world and 422nd in Europe for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 5,504.11 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
