Quastolia

Quastolia is an imaginary place created by Jamie McQuinn. Quastolia started out as a country for ants. The drawings were based initially on his backyard and then eventually the town he lived in. On his blog, Jamie tells of many stories about Quastolia. My favorite is his story about how in 9th grade his teacher approved him to do a report on his imaginary country for a class project. He completed a 19 page paper outlining all of the details including voting process, military structure, and major religions. His teacher really enjoyed the report writing, "What can I say! After 16 years of teaching, this is the first time I have ever read anything so creative and different. You gave it considerable thought. Would like you to explain this to class?" Jamie responded by writing, "No way!" deciding it might not be a good idea to stand in front of his 9th grade class explaining his country for ants. I personally like that, as an adult, he is perfectly happy blogging about it though. See Jamie's blog for more information.
