The Holy Empire of Tenkistan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Tenko with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 32.816 billion Tenkistanians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tenkistan City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Tenkistanian economy, worth an astonishing 15,046 trillion Tenks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 458,519 Tenks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,421,706 per year while the poor average 46,130, a ratio of 52.5 to 1.

Tenko's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, sleeping on the job is recommended, the mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying, and bars are packed at all hours. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Tenkistan's national animal is the Wombat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Tenkistan is ranked 374th in the world and 1st in Board 8 for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 16,799.77 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
