The Oppressed Peoples of Issues Test Bed is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by J Nobel Daggett esq with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working population of 10.751 billion Issues Test Bedians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ground Zero. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 76.4%.

The all-consuming Issues Test Bedian economy, worth 871 trillion Silver Dollars a year, is led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 81,035 Silver Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 272,424 per year while the poor average 17,873, a ratio of 15.2 to 1.

War vets look after war animals, there's a mortuary next to every Issues Test Bedian restaurant, the government response to disaster victims starving for bread is "let them eat stale cake", and penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Issues Test Bed's national animal is the Alaskan Malamute, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Issues Test Bed is ranked 34,419th in the world and 31st in Texas for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 15.24 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
