The Free Land of Tekatus is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Horatio Nullbuilt V5 with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate population of 1.303 billion Tekata are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novaesium. The average income tax rate is 25.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Tekata economy, worth 113 trillion Novas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 87,470 Novas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Undersea volcanoes receive strongly worded letters for violating environmental regulations, new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Tekatus to be bombproof, tourists call Tekata beach towns "the fine coastline", and it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tekatus's national animal is the Strider, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Monism.

Tekatus is ranked 247,785th in the world and 47th in The Alternate Community for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -9.62 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
