The Republic of Testa is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Caterina Nogson with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 20.98 billion Testans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Noghaven. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Testan economy, worth a remarkable 5,988 trillion Groats a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 285,430 Groats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, no personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police, and crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Testa's national animal is the Mongoose, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheist.

Testa is ranked 108th in the world and 5th in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 65,031.84 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
