The Protectorate of Quona is a large, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 85 million Aquitans 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 enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Aquitan economy, worth 2.30 trillion Coronas 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 27,045 Coronas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Kids are arrested at gunpoint for playing with toy rifles, state dairy cow's milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small-caliber bullets, counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, and elections have been outlawed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Quona's national animal is the Double axe stone lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Quona is ranked 190,188th in the world and 2nd in Rhodia for Most Avoided, scoring 1.1 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
