The Dictatorship of Choistan is a colossal, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.126 billion Choistanians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Choistan City. The average income tax rate is 68.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Choistanian economy, worth a remarkable 4,034 trillion shekels a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is a breathtaking 566,113 shekels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Choistanians seem to be catching more chills, the police double as repo men, gay hospital patients are labelled with a pink triangle to alert staff of their substandard blood, and commemorative mugs remembering last year's Black Friday Crockery Riots are a best seller this year. Crime is totally unknown. Choistan's national animal is the honey badger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Choistan is ranked 109,789th in the world and 6,019th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 14.5 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
