Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Queendom of Quest_Land is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 26.218 billion Quest_Landians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Argo. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The Quest_Landian economy, worth a remarkable 3,996 trillion D-Dols a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 152,447 D-Dols, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Reports of arson have doubled since the introduction of a privatised fire protection service, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, homophobia is off the menu, and foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle. Crime is almost non-existent. Quest_Land's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Quest_Land is ranked 178,977th in the world and 5,378th in Balder for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -36.3 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
