The Republic of Great Tequila Island is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Holly Peņa with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.868 billion Tequilans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Los Mescaleros. The average income tax rate is 61.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tequilan economy, worth 173 trillion Yescas a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. Average income is 92,687 Yescas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails, the only record being broken at sporting events is the highest death toll, and the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Great Tequila Island's national animal is the Tequila Mockingbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Great Tequila Island is ranked 57,288th in the world and 46th in International Democratic Union for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 2,267.05 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
