The Republic of Tessen is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President James Reagan with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 28.93 billion Tessens have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 Milwaukee. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Tessen economy, worth a remarkable 8,219 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which 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 284,133 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,050,194 per year while the poor average 54,187, a ratio of 19.4 to 1.

Animal Liberationists are regularly arrested, the nation's interest in space is at an all-time high while interest in saving the planet is at an all-time low, fashion stores are exploding in sales as clothing is reintroduced to the country, and the acceptance of acupuncture and other alternative therapies has needled the scientific community. 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 4,845th in the world and 3rd in American Union for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 7,074.25 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
