Here are the top level assignments:
»www.iana.org/assignments/ipv6-un···ents.xml

Remember, that 2001::/32 is for Teredo, and 2001:DB8::/32 is for documentation examples.

If you are making up addresses for a private test network, which types of IPV6 addresses should you use? I've never seen this addressed anywhere, so I just use 2001:: addresses.

You should use Unique Local IPv6 addresses per RFC 4193. This is the closest equivalent to the private address space in IPv4 (RFC1918).

It is important to follow the instructions in the RFC properly to ensure the uniqueness of the address block(s) you are using.
