The Republic of Teckia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Theodor Mann with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.862 billion Teckians 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, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kirchheim. The average income tax rate is 76.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Teckian economy, worth 166 trillion silvers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Retail. Average income is 89,637 silvers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Devotion to God is only skin-deep, public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, judges are rumored to find in favor of whoever bribes them the most, and party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Teckia's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Teckia is ranked 206,500th in the world and 287th in Anteria for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -6.32 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
