The Frigid Lands of Tesfff is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Eirik ÷berg with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and smutty television. The compassionate population of 3.269 billion Tesfffians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of FrÝmund. The average income tax rate is 93.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tesfffian economy, worth 645 trillion Antaresian Marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 197,578 Antaresian Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", churches across the land are hurriedly installing auto-tune for their choirs, pilots always remember to send their doctors a Maxxmas card, and the government defends a woman's right to choose. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tesfff's national animal is the Arctic Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Tesfffian Norse Mythology.

Tesfff is ranked 201,303rd in the world and 51st in The Wolf Clan for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -16.37 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
