The Allied States of Qetrela is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, enforced nudity, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 583 million Qetrelans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 56.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Qetrelan economy, worth 27.2 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 46,721 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned significant others, the new national mascot has to be wheeled onto the field of play, intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, and women find themselves saying "my eyes are up here" more often than they used to. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Qetrela's national animal is the Unicorn, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
