The Democratic States of Queimada is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 8.111 billion Queimadans 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 relatively small, outspoken government prioritizes Spirituality, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Welfare is ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.4%.

The very strong Queimadan economy, worth 524 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. Average income is 64,635 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

Leader spends weekends doing the laundry of foreign leaders, the police go to great efforts to seize contraband favored by politicians on the police oversight committee, citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, and fur coats have become the latest fashion trend. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force. Queimada's national animal is the Dolphin.

Queimada is ranked 70,131st in the world and 19th in The Cornellian Empire for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 1,979.31 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
