The Borderlands of Query 6 is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, fear of technology, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 11.368 billion Querians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Environment, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.9%.

The strong Querian economy, worth 656 trillion Querolians a year, is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Pizza Delivery, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 57,779 Querolians, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

Immigrants complain that natives keep coming over and taking their jobs, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', it is quite common for bar patrons to discuss Wittgenstein over cordials and games of backgammon, and once-vitriolic celebrity chefs are now known for giving encouraging hugs to aspiring cooks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Query 6's national animal is the Queridactl, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Query 6 is ranked 183,823rd in the world and 4,529th in Osiris for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -2 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
