The Republic of CheeseBurrito is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Big Cheese with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 1.704 billion CheeseBurritoans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cheesetopia. The average income tax rate is 53.8%.

The frighteningly efficient CheeseBurritoan economy, worth 299 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 175,847 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', interest in globalism never flags, the fattest folk in CheeseBurrito look to be the happiest ones, and nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines. Crime is totally unknown. CheeseBurrito's national animal is the swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

CheeseBurrito is ranked 10,648th in the world and 252nd in The East Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 4,374.69 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
