The Oppressive Evil Empire of Testlandstuff is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Supreme Evil Emperor Overlord Vlad Nyx with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, prohibition of alcohol, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.876 billion Opressed Ones are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vlad Nyxington. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 85.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Opressed economy, worth a remarkable 3,119 trillion blehs 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 Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Woodchip Exports. 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 amazing 396,091 blehs, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,567,686 per year while the poor average 24,435, a ratio of 105 to 1.

Sushi just hasn't been the same since salmon went extinct overnight, all transmission towers have been temporarily diverted in order to establish dialogue with a comet, soldiers' positions are given away by the glint of their bayonets, and stranded astronauts hitch rides on foreign spacecraft to get home. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Testlandstuff's national animal is the Genetically Modified Evil Dinosaur, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Vlad Nyxism.

Testlandstuff is ranked 89,091st in the world and 35th in Psychotic Dictatorships for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 2,128.76 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
