The Community of Teschnaia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Mr Corrector with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.074 billion Teschnites 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Corrigeville. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Teschnitic economy, worth 524 trillion geldmarks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 103,302 geldmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

More sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people, military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, and prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned significant others. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Teschnaia's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Teschnaia is ranked 213,048th in the world and 172nd in The Western Isles for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -228.41 on the Hayek Index.
