The Republic of Tessen is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President James Reagan with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 29.682 billion Tessens are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Columbia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Tessen economy, worth a remarkable 9,006 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 303,444 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,093,380 per year while the poor average 60,219, a ratio of 18.2 to 1.

Just as students finish their homework it's time for school, computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails, the country's motorways are surprisingly quiet, and employers may fire workers without giving any reason. Crime is totally unknown. Tessen's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Protestantism.

Tessen is ranked 1,260th in the world and 1st in American Union for Largest Populations, with 29.7 billion Capita.
