The Hive Mind of Testlandia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Meridian Zero with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 32.824 billion Testlandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Test City. The average income tax rate is 92.4%.

The strong Testlandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,316 trillion denarii a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. Average income is 70,573 denarii, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians sweat as journalists scour internet archives for any mention of them, mall countdown clocks warn that there are only 364 more shopping days until Maxxmas, blind students are at a disadvantage now that test papers printed in braille have been discontinued, and kids are arrested at gunpoint for playing with toy rifles. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Testlandia's national animal is the ★★★ nautilus ★★★, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Neo-Violetism.

Testlandia is ranked 491st in the world and 1st in Testregionia for Largest Populations, with 32.8 billion Capita.
