|Leader||President Thomas de Reptar|
The Corporate Republic of Cheesecakeastan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Thomas de Reptar with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 9.999 billion Cheesecakeastanians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
The minute, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cheesecakeopia. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Cheesecakeastanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,157 trillion Cakians a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 215,819 Cakians, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 757,256 per year while the poor average 44,619, a ratio of 17.0 to 1.
The cancellation of "The Real Vixens of Cheesecakeopia" has been described as a real blow for entertainment, economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year, the moon's craters are more numerous every day, and the government tells its citizens to 'forgive and forget'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Cheesecakeastan's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.
