The Corporation of Tesco Inc is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Manager Greg with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, state-planned economy, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.439 billion Customers are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Slough. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Tesco Incian economy, worth 425 trillion Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Retail, Information Technology, Gambling, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 123,677 Pounds, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 721,989 per year while the poor average 9,968, a ratio of 72.4 to 1.

The population's jaw muscles put sharks to shame, students learn how to disarm mines before understanding basic arithmetic, heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-Pound treacle machine, and the optimally efficient parking strategy for business commuters is referred to as the "traveling salesman problem". Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Tesco Inc's national animal is the Horse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Worship of the Milk.

Tesco Inc is ranked 114,710th in the world and 21st in Coldonia for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 1,454.13 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
