The People's Republic of Quanzo is a tiny, socially progressive nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 18 million Quanzoans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 60.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The struggling Quanzoan economy, worth 328 billion quanzos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 18,258 quanzos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, streakers swamp all public events in order to bare it all, grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, and the endangered saltwater humpback frog is only seen in captivity programs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Quanzo's national animal is the frog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Quanzo is ranked 58,702nd in the world and 188th in Conch Kingdom for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 1.9 Bank.
