The Most Serene Republic of Istastioner is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Alexandria Hamilton with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 4.605 billion Istastionerians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Milford City. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Istastionerian economy, worth 967 trillion Istastionerian Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 210,100 Istastionerian Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A weakened police force struggles to maintain law and order, dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, the path to inner peace is paved with state-mandated punishment, and the diplomatic corps tends to open negotiations by insulting all the foreigners in the room. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Istastioner's national animal is the Red Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Istastioner is ranked 6,619th in the world and 143rd in Europe for Best Weather, with 285 meters of sunlight.
