The Democratic Republic of Tennhauser is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Silence Dogood with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 7.203 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, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eudaimonia. The average income tax rate is 93.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tennhauserian economy, worth 984 trillion palings a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 136,696 palings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions, park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, and there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees. 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 Eudaimonism.

Tennhauser is ranked 4,308th in the world and 166th in Balder for Most Developed, scoring 94.45 on the Human Development Index.
