The Republic of Testnation223 is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by The Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The cynical population of 995 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, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Capital. The average income tax rate is 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Testnation223ian economy, worth 128 trillion Credits 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 a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Trout Farming, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 128,900 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, foreign nations kill migratory animals at random in the hope that Testnation223 will pay them to stop, the constant playing of Merry Birthday on Testnation223ian radio has led to calls for the song to be classified as a crime against humanity, and former stunt pilots are unable to pass the licence test to fly a drone. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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.
