The Commonwealth of The Cheese Puff Islands is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Hugh Janus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory gun ownership, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.169 billion Cheese Puffians 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 relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Defense, Healthcare, and Education are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cheese Puff City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Cheese Puff Islandsian economy, worth 170 trillion Puffs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 145,558 Puffs, with the richest citizens earning 9.9 times as much as the poorest.

Airplane passenger seat sizes and ticket prices are both first-class, strip mining of rare earth metals is up while back problems are down, video evidence of cruel animal experiments tends to be of poor quality, and chocolate in The Cheese Puff Islands has its flavour enhanced by the salty tears of enslaved factory workers. Crime is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Cheese Puff Islands's national animal is the Mustang, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Cheese Puff Islands is ranked 192,205th in the world and 648th in 10000 Islands for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 47.8 Whatever.
