The Corporate Republic of Cheesecakeastan is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Thomas de Reptar with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, daily referendums, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 9.268 billion Cheesecakeastanians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cheesecakeopia. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Cheesecakeastanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,995 trillion Cakians a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 215,321 Cakians, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 764,868 per year while the poor average 43,683, a ratio of 17.5 to 1.

A new "thought police" branch is being developed, Cheesecakeastanian housewives become unusually flustered when thinking about President Thomas de Reptar, political speeches that drill deep into bureaucratic fine detail could be said to be a little boring, and acute politicians deride opposition members for being obtuse. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Cheesecakeastan's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Cheesecakeastan is ranked 159,353rd in the world and 200th in New Western Empire for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -25.69 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
