The Republic of Tessen AU is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President James Reagan with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.827 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Milwaukee. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 14.9%.

The powerhouse Tessen economy, worth 137 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 75,529 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 219,810 per year while the poor average 20,526, a ratio of 10.7 to 1.

The army lures cannon fodder with promises of a college education, the government-sponsored autobiography 'A President James Reagan For All Seasons' has only been bought by the most loyal of President James Reagan's supporters, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, and toilet paper is considered a non-essential item in the embargo against Brasilistan. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Tessen AU'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 AU is ranked 37,840th in the world and 5th in Alternate Earth for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,720.14 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
