The Allied States of Quentiam Viventem is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 255 million Quentiam Viventemians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.1%.

The powerhouse Quentiam Viventemian economy, worth 23.0 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 90,285 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.2 times as much as the poorest.

A ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect, lending firms are subject to strict government regulations, only fully-fledged members of MENSA are allowed to vote, and collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Quentiam Viventem's national animal is the dolphin.

Quentiam Viventem is ranked 130,578th in the world and 6,986th in The North Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 13.97 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
