The United Protectorate of Tepertopia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Gerhard von Selingen with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.429 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 government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Happelstein. The average income tax rate is 43.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tepertopian economy, worth 159 trillion Silkes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 111,645 Silkes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government's fruit business reeks of rotting produce and corruption, bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, and the government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots. 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 cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Harmonism.

Tepertopia is ranked 188,781st in the world and 6,982nd in the South Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.66 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
