The Intersectional Community of Queerterra is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Unicorn Prism with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.064 billion Queerterrans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rainbow Arc. The average income tax rate is 93.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Queerterran economy, worth 260 trillion oons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 126,328 oons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Unicorn Prism's bedroom, abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals, and the art of conversation has been rediscovered. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Queerterra's national animal is the rainbow fae, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kindness.

Queerterra is ranked 5,819th in the world and 33rd in The Leftist Assembly for Healthiest Citizens, with 16.85 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
