Of Cheddar

Population830 million



The People's Republic of Of Cheddar is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 830 million Toe Beans 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 enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Whisker. The average income tax rate is 71.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Cheddarian economy, worth 42.0 trillion Kibbles a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 50,659 Kibbles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Factories grind to a halt every time there is an election, sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming, copyright laws have been abolished, and a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Of Cheddar's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Of Cheddar is ranked 194,173rd in the world and 6,834th in the South Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 8.28 Obesity Rate.
