The Democratic Republic of Qusmos is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Alexandre Laurent with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 17.25 billion Qusmosis hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Auriteaux. The average income tax rate is 62.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Qusmosian economy, worth a remarkable 1,709 trillion Mark de Républiques a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is 99,114 Mark de Républiques, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug, officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists, the pursuit of wanted criminals ends at the entrance of the pay'n'spray garage as police refuse to enter any private property, and exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting. Crime is totally unknown. Qusmos's national animal is the hawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Qusmos is ranked 22,059th in the world and 6th in Kerbin for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 3,377.78 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
