OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The United Kingdom of Quark Unit is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Liang Proton with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.934 billion Quarks 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jiben Lizi. The average income tax rate is 58.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Quark economy, worth 352 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 182,418 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Battlefield gains are quickly lost when enemies don't respect a time-out, the Quark Unit Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', school lockers are filled with fancy underwear, and tourists call Quark beach towns "the fine coastline". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Quark Unit's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Quark Unit is ranked 19,959th in the world and 1,123rd in Balder for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.14 Years.
