The Most Serene Republic of Istastioner is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Alexandria Hamilton with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.116 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 medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Milford City. The average income tax rate is 68.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Istastionerian economy, worth 265 trillion Istastionerian Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 125,325 Istastionerian Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Traumatized ex-ambassadors seek treatment for their "desk dissociation", election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, all writing must pass a censorship board before being allowed on the shelves, and the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms. Crime is totally unknown. 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 19,785th in the world and 84th in Refugia for Most Secular, with 66.58 Atheism Rate.
