The Ancient Cultured Kingdom of Tesfff is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Alfvold Caldrsson with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, strictly enforced bedtime, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 1.714 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 medium-sized, 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 88.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tesfffian economy, worth 317 trillion Antaresian Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 185,349 Antaresian Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

People can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler', all weapon research has been banned, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, and it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma. 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 Winter Stag, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Tesfffian Norse Mythology.

Tesfff is ranked 91,987th in the world and 1st in Dark Waters Inc for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
