The Democratic Republic of Tennhauser is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Silence Dogood with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.437 billion Tennhauserians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eudaimonia. The average income tax rate is 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tennhauserian economy, worth 689 trillion palings a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 126,849 palings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present, the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, and it takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle. Crime is totally unknown. Tennhauser's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is none.

Tennhauser is ranked 33,333rd in the world and 430th in Balder for Most Stationary, with 383.0707965012 Days.
