The Holy Empire of Tenkistan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Tenko with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, national health service, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 36.214 billion Tenkistanians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tenkistan City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Tenkistanian economy, worth an astonishing 16,707 trillion Tenks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 461,350 Tenks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Jollity-related fatalities are on the increase, the nation faces constant invasions by foreign boy bands, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and the children of Tenkistan are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Tenkistan's national animal is the Wombat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Tenkistan is ranked 157,071st in the world and 1st in Board 8 for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.36 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
