The Republic of Tectium is a small, safe nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, ubiquitous missile silos, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 26 million Tectians 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.

The relatively small government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. The average income tax rate is 18.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Tectian economy, worth 1.97 trillion Tectian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Gambling. Average income is 75,793 Tectian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Referenda are banned by law and the Parliament has absolute control of the legislative process, only fully-fledged members of MENSA are allowed to vote, parents who refuse to vaccinate their children are given a short jail sentence, and the arms industry is strictly regulated. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tectium's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Tectium is ranked 82,013th in the world and 4th in United Mediterranean Nations for Lowest Crime Rates, with 63.79 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
