OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Commonwealth of Tierra del Queso is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Joe Schmo with an even hand, and renowned for its restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 24.846 billion Tierra del Quesoans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tierra del Queso City. The average income tax rate is 82%, and even higher for the wealthy. A tiny private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Citizens may cast their vote over the internet or phone, education and welfare spending are on the rise, hunters have been known to lose limbs while attempting to 'play tag' with their prey, and political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. Tierra del Queso's national animal is the cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the cheese wedge.

Tierra del Queso is ranked 1st in Cheese and 77th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 96 on the Enoch Index.
