OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Commonwealth of Tierra del Queso is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Joe Schmo with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate population of 25.049 billion Tierra del Quesoans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tierra del Queso City. The average income tax rate is 91%, and even higher for the wealthy. An almost nonexistent private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Artists are pillars of society, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, refugees from other nations are flocking to Tierra del Queso's border, and there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt. 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 73rd in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 446 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
