The Office of Tessen Ambassadors is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ambassador Karl Vinton with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 7.918 billion Tessens enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Milwaukee. The average income tax rate is 56.3%.

The Tessen economy, worth 306 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 slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, Pizza Delivery, and Retail. 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 38,769 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Tessen Ambassadors has designated Milwaukee as its capital city, Ambassador Karl Vinton has just been declared ruler of Tessen Ambassadors in an international press conference, and freedom of religion has been named as Tessen Ambassadors's national religion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tessen Ambassadors's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is freedom of religion.

Tessen Ambassadors is ranked 119,868th in the world and 8th in Alternate Earth for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 44 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
