|Leader||the Triumviri Witherward Deducendae|
|Faith||the Philosophical Practice of Tolerance|
The Hypnagogic State of Tego Witherward is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Triumviri Witherward Deducendae with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of public education, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 15.574 billion Tegwardians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Falstaff. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.
The very strong Tegwardian economy, worth 708 trillion risums a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is 45,464 risums, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 291,335 per year while the poor average 2,895, a ratio of 100 to 1.
Tego Witherward has designated Falstaff as its capital city, almost half of the child population live rough on the streets, citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", and organised sports are frowned upon as frivolous. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem. Tego Witherward's national animal is the chinchilla, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Philosophical Practice of Tolerance.
