The дСвобода Мысл of Testlandia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Gol Tyâã with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 40.811 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 87.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Testlandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,416 trillion Kronenmünzes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 59,221 Kronenmünzes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Praying before a battle is a court-martial offence, solid-gold toilets are Testlandian prisons' least expensive furnishings, school plays were recently banned due to concerns of child endangerment, and a rolling news ticker tape of disclaimers runs across the bottom of the screen on all TV shows. 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 32,361st in the world and 1st in Testregionia for Most Income Equality, scoring 69.98 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
