The United Protectorate of Tepertopia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Gerhard von Selingen with a fair hand, and renowned for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 7.095 billion Tepertopians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Happelstein. The average income tax rate is 44.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tepertopian economy, worth 974 trillion Silkes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 137,358 Silkes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

4-year-olds studying for their mathematics exams are anxious that they will be unemployable in adulthood if they fail, old fossils give the tours at the parliamentary museum, "Gerhard von Selingen got your tongue?" has become a popular idiom, and traumatized ex-ambassadors seek treatment for their "desk dissociation". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Tepertopia's national animal is the housecat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cake Supremacy.

Tepertopia is ranked 299,004th in the world and 11,130th in the South Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.7 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
