The Democratic Republic of Tierra Fuego is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its national health service, rampant corporate plagiarism, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 2.644 billion Fuegians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ushuaia. The average income tax rate is 45.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Fuegoan economy, worth 195 trillion pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 73,998 pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hordes of tourists are ruining the environment, crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, drunk drivers are sentenced to death, and the nation's diplomats are all talk and no action. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tierra Fuego's national animal is the Andean Condor, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Tierra Fuego is ranked 133,758th in the world and 39th in Antarctica for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 974.21 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
