The Hive Mind of Testlandia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Meridian Zero with an even hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 23.988 billion Testlandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, the Environment, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Test City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
Testlandia Barrier Island residents anxiously await their 'Bridge to Somewhere', citizens select which government department gets their income tax yen each year, closed universities are currently being converted into MacDonald's restaurants, and prosecutors routinely call transplant doctors as 'expert witnesses' in burglary cases. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a problem. Testlandia's national animal is the ox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the yen.
