Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Hive Mind of Testlandia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Meridian Zero with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 29.884 billion Testlandians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defense, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Test City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91.6%.

The very strong Testlandish economy, worth a remarkable 2,214 trillion denarii a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 74,102 denarii, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

The food pyramid has been replaced with the word PASTA in bold block capital letters, Testlandians incessantly needle their doctors for relief, Meridian Zero is worshipped as a god, and rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 170,743rd in the world and 20th in Testregionia for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -174.94 on the Hayek Index.
