The Queen's State of Queensborough is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its complete lack of public education and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 9.726 billion Queensboroughians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.3%.

The thriving Queensboroughian economy, worth 147 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving. Average income is 15,186 betales, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 46,391 per year while the poor average 3,853, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

The government is avowedly atheist, the government is reining in public spending, and voting is voluntary. Crime is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Queensborough's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Queensborough is ranked 30,286th in the world and 6th in Libertaria for Most Stationary, with 364.98207891132 Days.
