The Commonwealth of Tierra del Queso is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Joe Schmo with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, strictly enforced bedtime, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 37.888 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, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tierra del Queso City. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Tierra del Quesoan economy, worth an astonishing 11,894 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 313,946 cheese wedges, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, and construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway. 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 31,847th in the world and 1st in Cheese for Most Extreme, scoring 31.64 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
