Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Dictatorship of Choistan is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, parental licensing program, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.686 billion Choistanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

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 38.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Choistanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,272 trillion shekels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 345,276 shekels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Crooks and people with too many kids are being kicked out of the country, one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, the country routinely whitewashes uncomfortable parts of its history, and boys who even ask about cheerleading are placed on the Sex Offenders Register. Crime is totally unknown. Choistan's national animal is the honey badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Choistan is ranked 17,570th in the world and 454th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 621.6662688 Days.
