OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Commonwealth of Tierra del Queso is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Joe Schmo with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate population of 25.199 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. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The fire protection service is wholly government-funded, a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, a new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, and the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth. 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 3rd in Cheese and 113,856th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -16 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
