The Dictatorship of Choistan is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, zero percent divorce rate, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 9.63 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 63.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Choistanian economy, worth a remarkable 5,979 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 620,936 shekels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, copyright laws have been abolished, politicians can be condescending (which by the way means "showing an attitude of patronising superiority"), and what citizens give with one hand they take away with the other. 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 185th in the world and 6th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 17,932.48 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
