The Sultanate of Qurtuba is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 405 million Qurtubians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Qurtuba. The average income tax rate is 39.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Qurtubian economy, worth 35.0 trillion Qurtubs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 86,421 Qurtubs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens must pay to enjoy Qurtuba's pristine beaches, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, Leader is too busy listening to praise to get any work done, and Brancaland has gifted over nine thousand putrid moose carcasses to Qurtuba as a reminder of their "special relationship". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Qurtuba's national animal is the Solar Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Qurtuba is ranked 102,868th in the world and 4,397th in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 2,269.68 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
