The Queendom of Tvanksta is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Audra Milegaude with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, public floggings, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.253 billion Tvankstans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Spirituality, and Environment are also considered important, while Education and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Auszra. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 76.1%.

The powerhouse Tvankstan economy, worth 712 trillion grossuses 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. 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 impressive 167,520 grossuses, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 679,220 per year while the poor average 27,503, a ratio of 24.7 to 1.

White stork sanctuaries have been taken over by hydraulic fracturing sites, shoppers have literally had their hands full since plastic bags were banned, cults that offer eternal life after death to those who follow a self-sacrificing saviour are frowned upon, and suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tvanksta's national animal is the white stork, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Romowe.

Tvanksta is ranked 25,587th in the world and 1,070th in The East Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 1,281 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
