The Unwavering Band of Light of Terestia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Jenny Owen Youngs with a fair hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.516 billion Pirates are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Your Apartment. The average income tax rate is 69.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Already Gone economy, worth 33.5 trillion sadgirl hours a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Retail and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 22,091 sadgirl hours, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal for a parent to tell a child to stop eating their boogers, superfoods are often seen as supervillains, it's all quiet on the western front, and the Federal Council of Terestia has been announced as the new Head of State. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Terestia's national animal is the Simplebot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Terestia is ranked 26,897th in the world and 74th in Artificial Solar System for Most Beautiful Environments, with 848.11 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
