The Republic of Testing nation 443 is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its closed borders, vat-grown people, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.138 billion Testing nation 443ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 83.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Testing nation 443ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,394 trillion kronor a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, Basket Weaving, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 227,191 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

New safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Testing nation 443 to be bombproof, the government funds private schools for intellectually gifted children, the government tries not to listen to the people unless it absolutely has to, and people who tease dwarfs are being cut down to size. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Testing nation 443's national animal is the cobra, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Testing nation 443 is ranked 7,383rd in the world and 336th in Osiris for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 58.98 Whatever.
