The Republic of Testing nation 450 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its closed borders, parental licensing program, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.923 billion Testing nation 450ians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 80.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Testing nation 450ian economy, worth 782 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 199,572 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

It is illegal to comfort a crying baby between the hours of 6 pm and 8 pm, a popular saying is "a chicken for every pot and an abortion clinic on every street", gaping tourists take long-distance photos of diseased natives on "indigenous peoples" safari tours, and citizens are told that foreigners are hungry ghosts who eat the flesh of the overly curious. 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 450's national animal is the crocodile, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Testing nation 450 is ranked 225,821st in the world and 17th in Rejected Realms for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -160.47 on the Hayek Index.
