The Socialist Democracy of Quasi-Millitary is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Erich Honecker with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, devout population of 12.632 billion Socialists are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of East Caprica. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The strong Quasi-Millitaryian economy, worth a remarkable 1,132 trillion Q-Marks a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 89,662 Q-Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Swings are now more popular than see-saws in children's playgrounds, it is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors, anyone who so much as frowns risks being referred to a mental health unit, and nation-building is the new national pastime. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Quasi-Millitary's national animal is the Cylon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Quasi Socialism.

Quasi-Millitary is ranked 22,892nd in the world and 4th in Island Continent for Largest Populations, with 12.6 billion Capita.
