The Grand Socialist Commonwealth of Cheesebecistan is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Grand Commissar with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.988 billion Cheesebecians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Isrosgow. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Cheesebecian economy, worth a remarkable 1,633 trillion Royals a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 163,521 Royals, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Farmers have taken to hunting billionaires who encroach on their land, citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint, on-duty Air Cheesebecistan flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class, and the nation's forests are full of treasure hunters in military-grade survival gear. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cheesebecistan's national animal is the Ermine Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Cheesebecistan is ranked 32,068th in the world and 411th in Balder for Most Stationary, with 409.9094251578 Days.
