Ultimate Q

Population5.238 billion

The Kingdom of Ultimate Q is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, frequent executions, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 5.238 billion Ultimate Qians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 38.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Ultimate Qian economy, worth 636 trillion Quses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 121,589 Quses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

People accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, nuclear submarines have been deployed to protect the nation's banana supply, being nicknamed "Orange Face" has done Leader's credibility no favours, and airplane passengers have been known to stuff pillows in their jackets to get extra arm room. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ultimate Q's national animal is the Squid, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ultimate Q is ranked 73,581st in the world and 2,620th in Osiris for Smartest Citizens, with 37.01 quips per hour.
