The Republic of Testa is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Caterina Nogson with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.959 billion Testans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Noghaven. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Testan economy, worth a remarkable 5,380 trillion Groats a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 283,817 Groats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Biotech companies are fined if their jumbled genetic sequences look too familiar, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Testans, newly synthesized elements' half-lives are a million times shorter than the time it takes to say their names, and the price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Testa's national animal is the Mongoose, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Testa is ranked 368th in the world and 7th in 10000 Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 193.24 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
