The Grand Nation of Cumquatia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Shobby with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.297 billion Cumquatians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Social Policy are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cum Central. The average income tax rate is 64.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Cumquatian economy, worth a remarkable 1,197 trillion Cumcoins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 97,403 Cumcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's war memorials are being torn down and replaced with peace gardens, the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble, nuclear warheads are frequently launched into space as a warning to invading meteoroids, and the phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon. Crime is totally unknown. Cumquatia's national animal is the Cumeranian willow pigeon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Cumquatia is ranked 221,506th in the world and 7th in Sovereign Charter for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -13.8 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
