The United Kingdom of Quark Unit is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 543 million Quarks have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jiben Lizi. The average income tax rate is 41.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Quark economy, worth 74.9 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 138,002 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Jennifer Government is a bestseller, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, '.lib' or '.con' domains indicate whether Quark websites are meant for liberals or conservatives, and a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Quark Unit's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
