The Kingdom of Quiameth is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Larson Shellman with a fair hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 7.659 billion Quiamethians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Oxford. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Quiamethian economy, worth a remarkable 1,085 trillion Lichens a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 141,745 Lichens, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 450,844 per year while the poor average 33,928, a ratio of 13.3 to 1.

The silencing of dissent speaks volumes about the quality of Quiamethian democracy, Little League matches are often attended by riot police with water cannon... just in case, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", and people are often woken up by rubbish music. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Quiameth's national animal is the Bottle-nosed Dolphin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Quiameth is ranked 24,136th in the world and 104th in The Free Nations Region for Most Cultured, scoring 80 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
