The Dictatorship of Choistan is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 4.402 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 58.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Choistanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,796 trillion shekels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 408,118 shekels, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

City rooftops are pockmarked with the shattered remains of experimental delivery drones, self-driving cars are unpopular due to suspicion that they murder their passengers, people believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more, and unemployed taxi drivers ironically use self-driving cabs to reach employment offices. 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 337th in the world and 12th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 17,802.88 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
