The Commonwealth of Tierra del Queso is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Joe Schmo with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 37.699 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, outspoken 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 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Tierra del Quesoan economy, worth an astonishing 11,806 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 313,183 cheese wedges, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, in a fit of passion Joe Schmo has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions, and voting is voluntary. 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 229,346th in the world and 7th in Cheese for Most Avoided, scoring 0.15 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
