LeaderThe Recluse


The Perfect Restfulness of Quiescent is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The Recluse with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, otherworldly petting zoo, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 8 billion Quiescentians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government is dominated by the Department of Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Silentium. The average income tax rate is 52.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Quiescentian economy, worth a remarkable 1,458 trillion Hushes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 182,271 Hushes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Breast milk is being redistributed from each according to their ability to each according to their need, colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Quiescentian Liberator", hostage-takers offer loyalty scheme points for prompt payment, and all footpaths have tollbooths. Crime is totally unknown. Quiescent's national animal is the Okapi, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Quiescent is ranked 175,441st in the world and 7,981st in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -34.93 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
