The Empire of Le Quac is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 1.972 billion Le Quacians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 31.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Le Quacian economy, worth 111 trillion francs a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 56,534 francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Freighter lifeboats have been replaced by state of the art marker buoys so divers can recover the cargo after they sink, parents who reward their teens' chores with concert tickets are charged with illegal reselling, childish pranks are no laughing matter, and pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Le Quac's national animal is the duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Le Quac is ranked 105,620th in the world and 82nd in Resuscitation for Largest Governments, scoring 12.92 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
