Quadium is a fictional element, a form of hydrogen, like deuterium and tritium. It comes from the book The Mouse That Roared, by Leonard Wibberly. In this book, the tiny duchy of Grand Fenwick successfully captures the world's most powerful bomb from the United States.
This is a great book to read if you get a chance. Although humorous in places, it makes you think about the roles smaller countries are often forced to play in global diplomacy.
