The Hive Mind of Testlandia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Violet with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 43.09 billion Testlandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tést City. The average income tax rate is 87.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Testlandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,572 trillion Kro-bro-ünzes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 59,711 Kro-bro-ünzes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Violet claims to know what infants are thinking, children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again, a stitch in time could see you serving nine, and real power lies not in the debating room but with those who decide what is debated. 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 73,008th in the world and 22nd in Testregionia for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 2,232.52 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
