LeaderThe Recluse


The Perfect Restfulness of Quiescent is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Recluse with a fair hand, and renowned for its digital currency, otherworldly petting zoo, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 7.08 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 are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Silentium. The average income tax rate is 83.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Quiescentian economy, worth a remarkable 1,289 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 182,177 Hushes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Silentium Times is sold out, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, and politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls. Crime is totally unknown. Quiescent's national animal is the Okapi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Quiescent is ranked 30,109th in the world and 331st in the South Pacific for Largest Populations, with 7.08 billion Capita.
