The Emirate of QuietNation5 is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 10.314 billion QuietNation5ians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Welfare, although Education, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 67.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant QuietNation5ian economy, worth 160 trillion Deneroes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Trout Farming, Pizza Delivery, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 15,519 Deneroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. QuietNation5's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

QuietNation5 is ranked 42,388th in the world and 2nd in Der Berliner Pakt for Most Politically Free, scoring 77.33 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
