The Holy Empire of Tenkistan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Tenko with a fair hand, and notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, daily referendums, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 32.796 billion Tenkistanians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tenkistan City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Tenkistanian economy, worth an astonishing 15,038 trillion Tenks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 458,561 Tenks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,434,744 per year while the poor average 45,628, a ratio of 53.4 to 1.

Kids' party bags often contain candy and e-cigarettes, 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, crayon squiggles were a late addition to the works of the Renaissance Old Masters, and organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Tenkistan's national animal is the Wombat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Tenkistan is ranked 1,328th in the world and 1st in Board 8 for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 824.11 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
