The Republic of Quebec (French: République du Québec) is a country in Greater Canada; it is located around the Saint Lawrence River and its mouth, and it borders the Maritime Union and New England to its east, the New Netherlands to its south, Canada to its west and north, and the Atlantic Ocean to its northeast. Once a French colony, it remained under British authority for much of its history, before finally becoming independent during the Great War.

The country's landscape is dominated by vast forests and gentle, rolling hills, as well as the great Saint Laurent river. Quebec and its population have always been French-speaking, and popular animosity against the English-speaking colony of Canada, of which Quebec was a part of, was widespread long before Canadian independence. The transition towards independence was relatively was relatively bloodless, and since then Quebec has been welcomed as a part of the international community.

The large amounts of natural resources present in the country helped foster Quebec's industrial development: timber exporting, agriculture and trade in its large urban centres are among the most important sectors of its diversified economy. The Saint Laurent river, largely navigable, plays a very important role in the country's economy, which is among the largest in the region, second only to Canada.
