The Hive Mind of Testlandia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Meridian Zero with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, compulsory vegetarianism, and irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 36.522 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 Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Test City. The average income tax rate is 77.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Testlandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,154 trillion denarii a year, is highly specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 58,991 denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Babies living in poverty are told to take responsibility for their own fortunes, traumatised refugees have a full bedpan shoved into their hands along with their immigration papers, male med students learning female anatomy do so with their eyes tightly closed, and future leaders of Testlandia regularly dismiss pressing political issues when available options don't conform to their worldview. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 169,664th in the world and 41st in Testregionia for Most Authoritarian, with 421.28 milliStalins.
