The Archbishopric of Twente is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Archbishop Gerhardus Janman with an iron fist, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, strictly enforced bedtime, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 42.478 billion Tubantians 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 primarily concerned with Defense, with Spirituality and Education also on the agenda, while Environment and International Aid receive 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 27,105 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. Average income is a breathtaking 638,107 Marks, with the richest citizens earning 8.8 times as much as the poorest.

People think "siege mentality" is a positive trait, religious turf wars have caused frustrated police to pray for divine intervention, god-fearing citizens can be seen in prayer circles around the Big Max impact crater, and invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Saxon Catholicism.

Twente is ranked 269,891st in the world and 1,108th in Europe for Most Politically Free, scoring 4.86 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
