Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Hive Mind of Testlandia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Meridian Zero with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 30.067 billion Testlandians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Test City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91.7%.

The strong Testlandish economy, worth a remarkable 2,210 trillion denarii a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 73,519 denarii, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

Rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, cars are banned, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and newspapers are running a front-page picture of Meridian Zero holding a crowbar and standing over a bloodied stockbroker. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Testlandia's national animal is the ★★★ nautilus ★★★, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Neo-Violetism.

Testlandia is ranked 25,052nd in the world and 2nd in Testregionia for Nicest Citizens, with 19.27 Average Smiles Per Day.
