The Democratic Royal Empire of Quen Minh is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Lanh Chinh with a fair hand, and renowned for its public floggings, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.829 billion Quenminese love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thien Dai. The average income tax rate is 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Quenminese economy, worth a remarkable 1,389 trillion tiens a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 108,289 tiens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, the police strictly enforce off-limit zones for tourists, and people talk about things being better when men were men. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Quen Minh's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Haimeism.

Quen Minh is ranked 222,997th in the world and 22nd in Tyran for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -19 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
