The Socialist State of Testnation223 is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.315 billion Testnationians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Capital. The average income tax rate is 94.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Testnation223ian economy, worth 168 trillion credits 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 Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, Trout Farming, and Tourism. 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 an impressive 128,389 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Obstetricians are not allowed to publish ultrasound pictures of fetuses in medical journals, the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced, the rich tend their gardens inside gated urban farming communities, and major cities are suffering under water rationing. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Testnation223's national animal is the leopard, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Leaderism.

Testnation223 is ranked 83,874th in the world and 2,295th in The North Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 168 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
