The Socialist State of Testnation223 is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, state-planned economy, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.295 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 163 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 126,130 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Astronauts take one small step for Testnation223 and one giant step backward from confrontation, frat-house partying has become the national pastime, access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery, and military training involves more video games than push-ups. 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 77,651st in the world and 2,901st in The North Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 51.62 Whatever.
