The Republic of Testa is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Caterina Nogson with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 21.74 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 prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. 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 6,233 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 286,720 Groats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Libraries are replacing history books and classic novels with technical manuals and trades directories to match the nation's changing demands, parking lots are littered with coffee cups and doughnut crumbs, standing on a chair to reach a top shelf is seen as evidence of narcissistic personality disorder, and citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons. 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 320th in the world and 6th in 10000 Islands for Most Beautiful Environments, with 6,765.38 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
