The United Kingdom of Quark Unit is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 685 million Quarks enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jiben Lizi. The average income tax rate is 37.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Quark economy, worth 100 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 146,191 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Powerful x-ray machines used by the Customs Department can see into the homes of nearby residents, new arrivals are asked the location of the Minister of the Interior's birthmark, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, and military officers are given medals for disobeying orders. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Quark Unit's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Quark Unit is ranked 2,838th in the world and 25th in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 9,312.92 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
