The Kingdom of Quartzland is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 510 million Quartzlanders are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 48.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Quartzlandian economy, worth 20.8 trillion Quartzes a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 40,742 Quartzes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Blind dates reemerge as a necessary evil in the quest for love, bins outnumber trees in city parks, girls who wear lipstick are berated for pandering to male gazes, and the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Quartzland's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Quartzland is ranked 87,420th in the world and 2,012th in The East Pacific for Most Stationary, with 95.03943917472 Days.
