The Commonweal of Testa is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Caterina Nogson with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 26.814 billion Testans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. 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 7,836 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 292,264 Groats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children's TV shows are having a gay old time, online terrorists are automatically assigned adverts for cheap balaclavas, planes can be grounded for months simply because an inspector "didn't like the color", and an internet search for the word "bland" produces pictures of Caterina Nogson. 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 237,679th in the world and 613th in 10000 Islands for Most Pro-Market, scoring 20.11 on the Rand Index.
