The Hive Mind of Testlandia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Meridian Zero with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic population of 37.161 billion Testlandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Test City. The average income tax rate is 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Testlandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,129 trillion denarii a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 57,305 denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Male med students learning female anatomy do so with their eyes tightly closed, future leaders of Testlandia regularly dismiss pressing political issues when available options don't conform to their worldview, praying before a battle is a court-martial offence, and solid-gold toilets are Testlandian prisons' least expensive furnishings. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Testlandia's national animal is the ★★★ nautilus ★★★, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Neo-Violetism.

Testlandia is ranked 61,733rd in the world and 16th in Testregionia for Most Secular, with 19.5 Atheism Rate.
