Testy McTester

Population9.856 billion


The Dictatorship of Testy McTester is a colossal, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 9.856 billion Testy McTesterians 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 large, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 63.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Testy McTesterian economy, worth 154 trillion testies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Average income is 15,653 testies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Testy McTester's national animal is the tribble, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Testy McTester is ranked 195,231st in the world and 142nd in Caer Sidi for Least Corrupt Governments, with 91.66 percentage of bribes refused.
