The Holy Empire of Tenkistan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Tenko with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 34.532 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 16,074 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 465,508 Tenks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,193,136 per year while the poor average 58,671, a ratio of 37.4 to 1.

The nation's youth is held blameless for all crimes, anti-government web sites are springing up, preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, and schools offer a range of lessons in subjects as diverse as The Economics of Bullying for Lunch Money. 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 205,993rd in the world and 4th in Board 8 for Highest Average Tax Rates, with -11.17 Effective Tax Rate.
