The Empire of Bistrostan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, devout population of 37.77 billion Bistrostanians 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 relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bistrostan City. The average income tax rate is 1.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bistrostanian economy, worth an astonishing 16,927 trillion drachmas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 448,182 drachmas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The rich tend their gardens inside gated urban farming communities, practically perfect royal toddlers tend to say "regrettably not at this juncture" rather than "no", parents dread their examinations more than their children, and getting an autograph has become harder than ever. Crime is totally unknown. Bistrostan's national animal is the cheetah, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Bistrostan is ranked 239,822nd in the world and 1st in The GameFAQs Forum for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -22.67 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
