The Protectorate of Tentaum is a very large, orderly nation, notable for its burgeoning lion population. The cynical population of 128 million Tentaumians are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 22.0%.

The sizeable but inefficient Tentaumian economy, worth 4.00 trillion rubles a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 31,249 rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, radio stations are forbidden to play anything with too much drum or bass, the government is seen to favor traditionalist religions, and gambling is outlawed. Crime is moderate. Tentaum's national animal is the lion.

Tentaum is ranked 44,710th in the world and 1,953rd in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,295.89 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
