The Empire of Tertania is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Jameson King with an iron fist, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.22 billion Tertanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Isonphis. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Tertanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,007 trillion Tertans a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 238,721 Tertans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The ongoing space elevator construction project has elevated the national debt to all new levels, the national security service are a bunch of crooks, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and the government blames all suspicious phenomena on flying saucers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tertania's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Tertania is ranked 32,556th in the world and 52nd in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 854.47 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
