The Oppressed Peoples of Issues Test Bed is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by J Nobel Daggett esq with an even hand, and notable for its parental licensing program, public floggings, and hatred of cheese. The hard-working population of 15.234 billion Issues Test Bedians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ground Zero. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 74.9%.

The all-consuming Issues Test Bedian economy, worth a remarkable 1,338 trillion Silver Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 87,850 Silver Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 433,206 per year while the poor average 10,149, a ratio of 42.7 to 1.

The government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, most Silver Dollar coins are riddled with bite marks, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, and arthritic surgeons with tremulous fingers reassure patients that they are in safe hands. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Issues Test Bed's national animal is the Alaskan Malamute, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Issues Test Bed is ranked 107,821st in the world and 47th in Texas for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 2,112.93 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
