The Yellow Cheese Land of ThePlace is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Cheese Head with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic, devout population of 3.945 billion Lolis enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 50.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Lolian economy, worth 400 trillion Pennies a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 101,597 Pennies, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

Recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed, a good deed is rewarded with a thank you note attached to a deportation order, social care for the elderly consists of a self help leaflet and a kick on the backside, and social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians. Crime is totally unknown. ThePlace's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is NEET.

ThePlace is ranked 12,111th in the world and 280th in the Rejected Realms for Most Cultured, scoring 101 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
