The Dictatorship of Choistan is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 4.975 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Choistanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,191 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 an amazing 440,428 shekels, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.

It is illegal to have the wrong clock time showing on your microwave oven, rundown towns are frequently sold to billionaires for their pet projects, the nation's youth would rather watch paint dry than the news, and the suicide rate mysteriously skyrockets during census years. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Choistan's national animal is the honey badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Choistan is ranked 184,899th in the world and 10,268th in The North Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring -24.7 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
