The Archbishopric of Twente is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Archbishop Gerhardus Janman with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, barren, inhospitable landscape, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 39.876 billion Tubantians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Spirituality and Education are also considered important, while Environment receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eanske. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Tubantian economy, worth an astonishing 24,629 trillion Marks a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is a breathtaking 617,643 Marks, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

Tourists outnumber citizens two to one, the nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet, the nation has always been at war with Moltovea, and naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Twente's national animal is the Steed, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Saxon Catholicism.

Twente is ranked 5,176th in the world and 68th in Europe for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 6,644.19 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
