Cheese Materials

The Dominion of Cheese Materials is a small, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 32 million Cheese Users are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.4%.

The thriving Using Cheese economy, worth 2.25 trillion Cheeses a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Average income is 70,241 Cheeses, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 248,630 per year while the poor average 14,327, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Citizens are prohibited from raising their voice above thirty decibels in commercial districts, corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians, preschoolers practice disarming active shooters before naptime, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Cheese Materials's national animal is the Cheese, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Cheese Materials is ranked 150,867th in the world and 6,814th in the South Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 63 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
