The Sheldonian Calendar of Quonkoland is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Sheldon Cooper with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 2.356 billion Quonkolandians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sheldonopolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Quonkolandian economy, worth 297 trillion Higgs Boson Particles a year, is led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Gambling. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 126,238 Higgs Boson Particles, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 646,329 per year while the poor average 13,538, a ratio of 47.7 to 1.

The police are destroying all photographic evidence of their own existence, major internet servers have acquired citizenship, diners regard burgers made from mechanically reclaimed cow protein as "proper meat", and anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Quonkoland's national animal is the goat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Ra Worship.

Quonkoland is ranked 216,897th in the world and 4,754th in Artificial Solar System for Most Primitive, scoring -165.84 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
