The Frigid Lands of Tesfff is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Eirik ÷berg with an even hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, unlimited-speed roads, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 3.714 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 93.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tesfffian economy, worth 733 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 197,464 Antaresian Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The nation takes the world's poor and tired and the huddled Masses yearning to breathe free, the nation's faithful often say there is a higher power watching over them, barbed wire entanglements and guard towers surround the FrÝmund Natural History Museum, and cooking with water and baking soda is considered patent infringement. 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 43,878th in the world and 18th in The Wolf Clan for Most Influential, scoring 583 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
