OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Commonwealth of Tierra del Queso is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Joe Schmo with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 24.248 billion are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The small government 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 46%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Surveillance cameras are banned, museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, re-education centers are being added to most prisons, and almost all of Tierra del Queso's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices. 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 11,863rd in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 105 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
