The Batch of Cheeseworld is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, feral children, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 10.543 billion Cheesemongers live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken individuals prioritizes Education, with Environment and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nacho City. Income tax is unheard of.

The strong Cheeseworldian economy, worth a remarkable 1,037 trillion cheese slices a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is 98,440 cheese slices, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 533,973 per year while the poor average 9,359, a ratio of 57.1 to 1.

Even the most lowly council pen-pusher has the same political power as a senior minister, abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals, the nation's leader is normally just referred to as "snuggle-wuggle-huggy-bear", and tumbleweeds made of litter adorn city streets. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Cheeseworld's national animal is the Cheese, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Cheeseworld is ranked 90,313th in the world and 4,716th in The North Pacific for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 66.07 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
