The Queen's State of Quarter-Master is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory military service and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 24.114 billion Quarter-Masterians 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 is dominated by the Department of Law & Order, with Industry and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.5%.

The strong Quarter-Masterian economy, worth 744 trillion betales a year, is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 30,868 betales, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

The police force is on a recruitment drive, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, all tariffs have been abolished, and employers may fire workers without giving any reason. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Quarter-Master's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Quarter-Master is ranked 83,063rd in the world and 3rd in Uganda for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 71.06 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
