The Republic of Testnation223 is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The cynical population of 748 million Testnationians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Capital. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Testnation223ian economy, worth 81.0 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 108,243 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ministers browse Alright! magazine for fashion tips, colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Testnation223ian Liberator", mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of leopards and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry, and anniversaries of major historical events pass unnoticed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Testnation223's national animal is the leopard, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Testnation223 is ranked 187,335th in the world and 7,562nd in The North Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -7.04 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
