The Hive Mind of Testlandia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Meridian Zero with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 35.725 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.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Test City. The average income tax rate is 77.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Testlandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,103 trillion denarii a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 58,883 denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Babies living in poverty are told to take responsibility for their own fortunes, traumatised refugees have a full bedpan shoved into their hands along with their immigration papers, male med students learning female anatomy do so with their eyes tightly closed, and future leaders of Testlandia regularly dismiss pressing political issues when available options don't conform to their worldview. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 147,700th in the world and 44th in Testregionia for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 13,484.33 Standard Monetary Units.
