The People's Republic of Quanzo is a small, safe nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The quiet, industrious population of 20 million Quanzoans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 64.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The struggling Quanzoan economy, worth 374 billion quanzos 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 slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. 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 18,704 quanzos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is paving paradises to put up parking lots, airplane passenger seat sizes and ticket prices are both first-class, there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, and loss of the ability to speak is a common affliction of the elderly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Quanzo's national animal is the frog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Quanzo is ranked 208,482nd in the world and 3rd in Quanzo for Largest Black Market, with 11.5 billion Standard Monetary Units.
