LeaderThe Recluse


The Perfect Restfulness of Quiescent is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Recluse with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 7.454 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, although Healthcare, Environment, and Administration are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Silentium. The average income tax rate is 85.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Quiescentian economy, worth a remarkable 1,381 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 reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 185,396 Hushes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, artificial intelligences seeking exciting work are overcome with ennui, and there is a dearth of space for new houses. Crime is totally unknown. Quiescent's national animal is the Okapi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Quiescent is ranked 159,855th in the world and 6,554th in the South Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 19.45 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
