The Democratic States of Quintessence of Dust is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Natalia Kivistö with an even hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.545 billion Quodites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Social Policy, and Defense are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Highmark City. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Quintessential economy, worth a remarkable 2,754 trillion sovereigns a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 238,603 sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead", toilet paper is considered a non-essential item in the embargo against Brasilistan, vital intelligence-gathering activities are often put on hold for Call of Honor tournaments, and power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky. Crime is totally unknown. Quintessence of Dust's national animal is the hawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Quintessence of Dust is ranked 205,543rd in the world and 100th in International Democratic Union for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.53 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
