The Nation of TESDAI is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Johnathan H Allan with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, state-planned economy, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.279 billion TESDAIns love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cantawa. The average income tax rate is 61.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong TESDAIn economy, worth 464 trillion dollars 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 large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. 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 73,939 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every school is receiving a brand new eraser, urban parents tell their children that the family car went to a farm upstate, translators are keen to explain feline MPs' claw and ordure policies, and nobody knows why the caged Spring Salamander sings. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. TESDAI's national animal is the Spring Salamander, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

TESDAI is ranked 239,256th in the world and 282nd in Lands End for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.41 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
