LeaderThe Recluse


The Perfect Restfulness of Quiescent is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Recluse with an even hand, and remarkable for its closed borders, national health service, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cheerful population of 9.128 billion Quiescentians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Silentium. The average income tax rate is 12.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Quiescentian economy, worth a remarkable 1,667 trillion Hushes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 182,720 Hushes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Tourists call Quiescentian beach towns "the fine coastline", Dogman-branded weapons are all the rage in the militaristic comic-book community, multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy", and children have taken to using semaphore in light of the recent mobile phone ban. Crime is totally unknown. Quiescent's national animal is the Okapi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sleep.

Quiescent is ranked 168,207th in the world and 6,927th in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -13.34 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
