The Dictatorship of Choistan is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 5.859 billion Choistanians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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 67.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Choistanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,984 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 509,316 shekels, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,651,370 per year while the poor average 118,530, a ratio of 13.9 to 1.

Even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, wealthy parents-to-be can select their perfect baby, some are born loving old plays and some have old plays thrust upon them, and pawn shop reality shows dominate basic cable. Crime is totally unknown. Choistan's national animal is the honey badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Choistan is ranked 165,038th in the world and 9,629th in The North Pacific for Most Pacifist, with 2.6 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
