The Archbishopric of Twente is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Archbishop Gerhardus Janman with an iron fist, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, avowedly heterosexual populace, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 38.022 billion Tubantians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Spirituality and Education also on the agenda, while Environment isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eanske. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Tubantian economy, worth an astonishing 21,801 trillion Marks a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is a breathtaking 573,403 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, unwary hikers climbing the bluffs of Mount Eanske make great practice for foreign snipers, Air Twente tickets have reached sky-high prices due to a complete monopoly on air travel, and corporate executives continue to enjoy generous tax benefits while the public is taxed to the hilt. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Twente's national animal is the Steed, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Saxon Catholicism.

Twente is ranked 218,351st in the world and 1,167th in Europe for Nudest, with 2.25 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
