The Kingdom of Quoph is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Biscuiteen Trisket with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, soft-spoken computers, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 6.407 billion Quophites 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. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Biscuitburg. The average income tax rate is 68.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Quophish economy, worth 461 trillion Chilis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Book Publishing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 72,085 Chilis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-Chili treacle machine, big game hunters travel to Quoph to try their hand at shark-shooting, the nation leads The North Pacific for unlikely accidents and truffle consumption, and healthcare workers are flummoxed over the spike in foreign tourists with sudden-onset heart disease. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Quoph's national animal is the Kiwi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Quoph is ranked 165,077th in the world and 7,109th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -112.39 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
