The Hive Mind of Testlandia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Meridian Zero with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic population of 33.714 billion Testlandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Test City. The average income tax rate is 75.4%.

The strong Testlandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,868 trillion denarii a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 55,423 denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

It is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors, preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, babies living in poverty are told to take responsibility for their own fortunes, and traumatised refugees have a full bedpan shoved into their hands along with their immigration papers. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a 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 40,336th in the world and 21st in Testregionia for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 123.25 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
