The Righteous Imperial Dominion of Tergnitz is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Augustus Tiberian Vera with an even hand, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, compulsory military service, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 11.395 billion Tergnitzians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pretoria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Tergnitzian economy, worth a remarkable 1,524 trillion Imperial Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 133,768 Imperial Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 542,369 per year while the poor average 21,961, a ratio of 24.7 to 1.

Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme, students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, shanty towns have formed around the newly rebuilt commercial district, and new religious sects are squashed immediately by the government. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Tergnitz's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Varist Christianity .

Tergnitz is ranked 6th in Ellorea and 13,885th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 163 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
