The Wicca Queendom of Quartzinne is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Amélie Poulain with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.859 billion Quartzinnette hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Industry, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vogue Elle. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Quartzeninne economy, worth a remarkable 1,875 trillion Quashions a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 172,688 Quashions, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Amélie Poulain's webseries about the alleged hauntings of Vogue Elle generates millions of views, the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage, the ongoing space elevator construction project has elevated the national debt to all new levels, and movies depict muscle-bound women kicking down a titanium door to carry hysterical men to safety. Crime is totally unknown. Quartzinne's national animal is the Rosy Maple Moth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Fashionism.

Quartzinne is ranked 224,931st in the world and 684th in Europeia for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -8.53 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
