The Dictatorship of Choistan is a colossal, cultured nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 5.512 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 66.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Choistanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,693 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 488,694 shekels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The rainbow assortment of chemicals in the water has turned the frogs gay, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, a policy of plausible deniability helps protect the government from athletic doping scandals, and the nation is known abroad mostly for its Parliamentary antics. Crime is totally unknown. Choistan's national animal is the honey badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Choistan is ranked 69,195th in the world and 3,707th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 60.86 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
