The Quantum Interference Device of Courlany is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by NationStates MEMBER SINCE MARCH 2007 with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, avant-garde cinema, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.294 billion Courlaners are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Industry, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Courlanepolis-Sagan. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Courlan economy, worth a remarkable 4,875 trillion NOBEL PRIZES a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 266,488 NOBEL PRIZES, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Courlanepolis-Sagan as a backdrop, the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, and Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Courlany's national animal is the PRINCETON TIGER, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Courlany is ranked 215,322nd in the world and 7,323rd in Lazarus for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.39 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
