The Empire of Quark Unit is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Liang Proton with a fair hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.402 billion Quarks 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 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 60.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Quark economy, worth 439 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 182,882 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The explosive fireball of the disintegrating space shuttle has devastated Cape Quark Unit, weighted heels are added to military boots to ensure diminutive celebrities meet minimum requirements, throwing garbage out of your house's front window makes it legally someone else's problem, and you can bet your bottom dollar that gambling will cost you an arm and a leg. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Quark Unit's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Quark Unit is ranked 19,631st in the world and 1,025th in Balder for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,384.83 Tourists Per Hour.
