The Freaky Fish of Questann is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Allison Hope with a fair hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, complete lack of prisons, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 4.202 billion Questannians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neofara. The average income tax rate is 93.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Questannian economy, worth 572 trillion muddy puddles a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 136,346 muddy puddles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, doctors spend more time writing sick notes than caring for the sick, the universal wage level is set by dividing GDP by the number of citizens, and thieves find battery shops juicier targets than banks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Questann's national animal is the rebecca rabbit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Flemingovianism.

Questann is ranked 5,524th in the world and 1st in The Fish Tank for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 16,034.3 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
