The Republic of Testa is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Caterina Nogson with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 20.772 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 are ignored. 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 5,896 trillion Groats a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 283,879 Groats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Testan Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, and travelers are subject to extensive searches if beet stains are visible on their clothing. 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, and its national religion is Atheist.

Testa is ranked 425th in the world and 9th in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 98.98 on the Human Development Index.
