The Commonweal of Testa is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Caterina Nogson with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 23.247 billion Testans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Noghaven. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Testan economy, worth a remarkable 6,695 trillion Groats a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 287,994 Groats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, police officers often head to work wearing onesies and fluffy pink bunny-slippers, teach an angler how to phish and he can make a living, and it is illegal to have the wrong clock time showing on your microwave oven. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Testa's national animal is the Mongoose, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheist.

Testa is ranked 243rd in the world and 5th in 10000 Islands for Smartest Citizens, with 348.96 quips per hour.
