The United Kingdom of Quark Unit is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Liang Proton with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.431 billion Quarks enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jiben Lizi. The average income tax rate is 46.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Quark economy, worth 255 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 178,630 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Bars are packed at all hours, everybody's got wood thanks to Liang Proton, military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. 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 36,696th in the world and 1,472nd in The East Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 71.9 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
