The Empire of Istral is a tiny, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, enslaved workforce, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 10 million Istralians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.4%.

The strong Istralian economy, worth 507 billion IIS a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Furniture Restoration, and Gambling. Average income is 50,767 IIS, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.

The government has an "easy come, easy go" policy on youth crime, advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, blind students are at a disadvantage now that test papers printed in braille have been discontinued, and same-sex marriages are increasingly common. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Istral's national animal is the Human, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Istral is ranked 74,797th in the world and 10th in United Queensland for Highest Drug Use, scoring 62.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
