The Democratic States of Kistolia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Greshoe Jemtrik with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 1.159 billion Kistolians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Hesuolo. The average income tax rate is 68.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kistolian economy, worth 110 trillion Kistoes a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 95,173 Kistoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Companies struggle to cover for the hordes of employees on parental leave, the countryside is shrouded by wind farms, the most popular stadium acts are one-off performances, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kistolia's national animal is the Kistolian Blue Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kistolia is ranked 202,167th in the world and 336th in Anteria for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -5.66 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
