Quail Empire

Population351 million


The Republic of Quail Empire is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 351 million Quail Empireans 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 55.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Quail Empirean economy, worth 24.8 trillion Quails a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 70,699 Quails, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, politicians stage photo ops featuring barely functional fighter jets, the new "Bloodbath" orange tree autonomously seeks and destroys independent orchards, and citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Quail Empire's national animal is the Quail, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Quail Empire is ranked 183,843rd in the world and 7,383rd in The East Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.78 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
