The Empire of Tertania is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jaedan Maxwell with an iron fist, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, sprawling nuclear power plants, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.54 billion Tertanians 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 large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Isonphis. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Tertanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,670 trillion Tertans a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 255,352 Tertans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The housing market has collapsed like an overbaked Brancalandian souffle, cyclists spend more time unlocking their bicycles than they do cycling, the new "Bloodbath" orange tree autonomously seeks and destroys independent orchards, and the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tertania's national animal is the raven, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Tertania is ranked 174,294th in the world and 235th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -3.82 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
