The Hive Mind of Testlandia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Meridian Zero with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic population of 33.702 billion Testlandians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Test City. The average income tax rate is 75.4%.

The strong Testlandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,858 trillion denarii a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 55,130 denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

It is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors, preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, babies living in poverty are told to take responsibility for their own fortunes, and traumatised refugees have a full bedpan shoved into their hands along with their immigration papers. Crime is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Testlandia's national animal is the ★★★ nautilus ★★★, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Neo-Violetism.

Testlandia is ranked 161,646th in the world and 60th in Testregionia for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 48.44 Workforce Participation Rate.
