The Way too happy socialist mess of Kashtyria is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Lila Sokunamat with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.878 billion Kashtyrians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Teshmarakh. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Kashtyrian economy, worth 535 trillion s¨ms a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 109,871 s¨ms, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's politicians are acknowledged as the most polite in the region to the dismay of comedians everywhere, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, promising seven years of bad luck leads to seven years of community service, and Lila Sokunamat always arrives fashionably late and smelling of mushrooms. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kashtyria's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kashtyria is ranked 1,786th in the world and 29th in Europe for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 20,628.41 on the Edu-tellignce« Test Score.
