The Commonwealth of Tierra del Queso is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Joe Schmo with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 42.007 billion Tierra del Quesoans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tierra del Queso City. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Tierra del Quesoan economy, worth an astonishing 13,299 trillion cheese wedges a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 316,599 cheese wedges, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, citizens select which government department gets their income tax cheese wedges each year, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, and the tenet of free speech is held dear. Crime is totally unknown. Tierra del Queso's national animal is the cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tierra del Queso is ranked 51st in the world and 1st in Cheese for Smartest Citizens, with 466.88 quips per hour.
