The Hypnagogic State of Tego Witherward is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Triumviri Witherward Deducendae with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of public education, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 13.742 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 633 trillion risums a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is 46,099 risums, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 189,204 per year while the poor average 7,415, a ratio of 25.5 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.

Tego Witherward is ranked 20,120th in the world and 1,130th in Balder for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 1 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
