The Shape of Tiegenhof is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Mr Fagnat with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.906 billion Tiegenhofians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small 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 Cran. The average income tax rate is 56.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tiegenhofian economy, worth a remarkable 1,004 trillion marks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 204,835 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage, many mayors are barely in office before being kicked out for minor parking violations, and psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Mr Fagnat to meetings with foreign heads of state. Crime is totally unknown. Tiegenhof's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tiegenhof is ranked 48,105th in the world and 884th in Osiris for Most Influential, scoring 506 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
