Tesuma is a state located in eastern Grand Besaid and consists of vast webs of islands stretching all around the eastern and central bays of Grand Besaid. Tesuma also consists of a large coastal area in the eastern portions of Grand Besaid.

This region is famous for its tropical climate and wealth. As such, it is a major tourist destination and a great place for enjoying tropical wilderness. Tesuma is divided into reserves and settlements by strict perseveration laws, which prove to be very effective at regulating traffic and growth, and maintaining the great condition of the environment. In the nothern regions of the costal areas of Tesuma, great bamboo forests exist, and are inhabited with pandas, the state animal.

Tesuma is bordered by the South China Sea and Oyen to its south, by the South China Sea to its east, by the Southern China Confederacy to its west, and by the People's Republic of China to its north.

Tesuma has an approximate land area of 132,352 mi2, and a population of 320,778,254 as recorded by the last national census. The capital of Tesuma is Atria.

A quarter of the members of the House of Senators are elected through closed list proportional representation; one eighth of the members of the House of Senators are elected by the entire state from a list of candidates chosen through the allotment of the willing electors of the state using a single transferable vote; the last one eighth of the members are appointed by the governor. Senators serve terms of six years, and all two-hundred fourty-eight senators are chosen at the same time. The Lieutenant Governor is the presiding officer of the House of Senators, possessing a vote only in the instances of ties.
