The People's Union of TESDAI is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Johnathan H Allan with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 4.287 billion TESDAIns have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cantawa. The average income tax rate is 34.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong TESDAIn economy, worth 244 trillion dollars 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 Book Publishing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 57,136 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, there are no more heroes any more, cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, and foreign policy is to avoid standing up to bullies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. TESDAI's national animal is the Spring Salamander, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

TESDAI is ranked 192,374th in the world and 245th in Lands End for Most Primitive, scoring -125.12 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
