The Democratic States of Quintessence of Dust is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Natalia Kivistö with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.432 billion Quodites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Social Policy, and Defense also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Highmark City. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Quintessential economy, worth a remarkable 2,727 trillion sovereigns a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 238,603 sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead", toilet paper is considered a non-essential item in the embargo against Brasilistan, vital intelligence-gathering activities are often put on hold for Call of Honor tournaments, and power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky. Crime is totally unknown. Quintessence of Dust's national animal is the hawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Quintessence of Dust is ranked 5,548th in the world and 17th in International Democratic Union for Highest Economic Output, with 2,727 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
