The Hive Mind of Testlandia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Violet with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, compulsory vegetarianism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 44.206 billion Testlandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tést City. The average income tax rate is 88.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Testlandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,742 trillion Kro-bro-ünzes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. Average income is 62,041 Kro-bro-ünzes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Violet claims to know what infants are thinking, children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again, a stitch in time could see you serving nine, and real power lies not in the debating room but with those who decide what is debated. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Testlandia's national animal is the ★★★ nautilus ★★★, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Neo-Violetism.

Testlandia is ranked 210,356th in the world and 30th in Testregionia for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 73,985 Standard Monetary Units.
