The Shape of Tiegenhof is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Mr Fagnat with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, anti-smoking policies, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.81 billion Tiegenhofians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, liberal government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Environment, and Administration are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caeran. The average income tax rate is 49.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tiegenhofian economy, worth 498 trillion marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 177,494 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, interest in globalism never flags, and five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes. Crime is totally unknown. Tiegenhof's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tiegenhof is ranked 50,282nd in the world and 1,502nd in Lazarus for Most Politically Free, scoring 70.19 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
