The United Protectorate of Tepertopia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Gerhard von Selingen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, national health service, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.847 billion Tepertopians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Industry, with Education, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Happelstein. The average income tax rate is 49.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tepertopian economy, worth 340 trillion Silkes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 119,438 Silkes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Doctors are trying to diagnose diseases by looking at their patients' Snipchat pictures, undergrads find their professors' mushroom experiments less psychedelic than expected, the government has begun breaking all large businesses into thousands of mom-and-pop general stores, and Gerhard von Selingen has no checks and balances after the upper house was abolished. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tepertopia's national animal is the housecat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Amerionism.

Tepertopia is ranked 15,127th in the world and 474th in the South Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,274.44 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
