The Grand Duchy of Quinto Piano is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Franco Scaglia with an iron fist, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 959 million Quintopianistas are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coffee Quinto. The average income tax rate is 77.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Quintopianista economy, worth 122 trillion Doghes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 127,535 Doghes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Coffee Quinto, citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers, halberds are common 18th birthday presents, and programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Quinto Piano's national animal is the Fratton, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Quinto Piano is ranked 10,561st in the world and 324th in The East Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 100,321.91 Standard Monetary Units.
