The Socialist State of Testnation223 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.258 billion Testnationians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Capital. The average income tax rate is 94.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Testnation223ian economy, worth 157 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 125,450 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-credit treacle machine, professionals are ready to retire by the time they receive permission to use their credentials, and the official Testnation223ian Phrase Book weighs as much as a small child. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Testnation223's national animal is the leopard, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Leaderism.

Testnation223 is ranked 78,165th in the world and 2,993rd in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 152,500 Standard Monetary Units.
