Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Democratic republic of Quetello is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 729 million Quetellians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nymin. The average income tax rate is 66.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Quetelloan economy, worth 51.7 trillion ques a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 70,971 ques, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign policy is mostly just to smile and hope for the best, weapons produced by newly nationalized armaments factories have been found to contain sawdust instead of gunpowder, the country routinely whitewashes uncomfortable parts of its history, and debate rages over whether ground fish guts can be spread on fields. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Quetello's national animal is the snake, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Quetello is ranked 138,522nd in the world and 1st in region for abandoning nations for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -5.1 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
