The Dictatorship of Istazia is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 492 million Istazians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Peking. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.4%.

The Istazian economy, worth 27.1 trillion marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Woodchip Exports, and Gambling. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 55,032 marks, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

Istazia has designated Peking as its capital city, internet trolls are considered valiant supporters of the right to free speech, prisons are filled with the cackles and sobs of a deranged inmate population, and recent events in Dàguó have been classified 'for Leader's eyes only'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Istazia's national animal is the porpoise, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Istazia is ranked 78,143rd in the world and 14th in Noxus pact for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 1,610.56 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
