The Knight-errant of Quixote is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sancho Panza with an iron fist, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 20.065 billion Dons Quixotes are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of La Mancha. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37.4%.

The frighteningly efficient quixotic economy, worth a remarkable 2,904 trillion Cervanteses 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, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. 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 an impressive 144,775 Cervanteses, with the richest citizens earning 8.3 times as much as the poorest.

Anyone who sneezes at border crossings is turned away, guide dogs for the blind have been seen using government websites, cheating spouses are required to undergo job training, and most believe it doesn't hurt to embrace free trade. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Quixote's national animal is the Rocinante, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is chivalry.

Quixote is ranked 14,015th in the world and 14th in Seinfeld for Healthiest Citizens, with 12.43 bananas ingested per day.
