The Dictatorship of Tessau is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Tsar Clouseau with an iron fist, and notable for its fear of technology, anti-smoking policies, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 10.88 billion Pencil-Pushers are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dresden. The average income tax rate is 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Tessauan economy, worth 483 trillion Silvers 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. Average income is 44,410 Silvers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The men in trenchcoats hanging around playgrounds are actually police officers, courses in how to boil water are popular for formerly microwave-reliant Pencil-Pushers, healthcare workers are flummoxed over the spike in foreign tourists with sudden-onset heart disease, and Brancaland has gifted over nine thousand putrid moose carcasses to Tessau as a reminder of their "special relationship". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tessau's national animal is the Ghost, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pink Panther-ism.

Tessau is ranked 1,264th in the world and 502nd in The North Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 60,755 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
