The Democratic People's Republic of Quelsh is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by People's Assembly with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.783 billion Quelshians 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 large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Defense, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of District 0. The average income tax rate is 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Quelshian economy, worth a remarkable 2,140 trillion Quelsh Units a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 167,463 Quelsh Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Historic buildings are being demolished to allow for road-widening in the city centre, the "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture, cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, and drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web. Crime is totally unknown. Quelsh's national animal is the Crocodile, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Christianity.

Quelsh is ranked 7,356th in the world and 6th in Australialia for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 5,291.01 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
