The Serene State of Quebecshire is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Rhaza with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 13.49 billion Quebecshirites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Quebecshire City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 80.6%.

The all-consuming Quebecshirite economy, worth a remarkable 1,344 trillion Quebecshirite Credits a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 99,648 Quebecshirite Credits, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Policemen regularly conduct midnight raids on closed donut shops to 'collect evidence', old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, school lunches are made with hypo-allergenic wood pulp, and the government funds large training centres to turn Black Bears into functioning members of society. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Quebecshire's national animal is the Black Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Quebecshire is ranked 38,253rd in the world and 67th in The League for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 4,274.86 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
