LeaderThe Recluse


The Perfect Restfulness of Quiescent is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Recluse with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, otherworldly petting zoo, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed population of 6.754 billion Quiescentians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government is dominated by the Department of Education, with Healthcare, Administration, and Environment 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 81.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Quiescentian economy, worth a remarkable 1,194 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 176,838 Hushes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is quite common for bar patrons to discuss Wittgenstein over cordials and games of backgammon, it's best not to ask what goes into Silentium Fried Chicken's secret blend of herbs and spices, restaurants are required to specify whether their toilet paper was made in Quiescent, and signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles. Crime is totally unknown. Quiescent's national animal is the Okapi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Quiescent is ranked 156,763rd in the world and 6,836th in the South Pacific for Most Devout, with 2.56 Prayers Per Hour.
