Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Dictatorship of Choistan is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 3.295 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 25.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Choistanian economy, worth 994 trillion shekels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 301,925 shekels, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.

Cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel, the nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet, politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, and a recent political debate came to a quick close once the ruling party decreed it was "just plain silly". Crime is totally unknown. Choistan's national animal is the honey badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Choistan is ranked 7,652nd in the world and 220th in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 16.63 Weapons Per Person.
