The National Syndicated Fiefdom of Kustonia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Chancellor Lodved Rendhopp with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, infamous sell-swords, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.585 billion Kustonians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Law & Order, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zonnox. The average income tax rate is 93.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kustonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,658 trillion Jüks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 143,119 Jüks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Children who believe in the tooth fairy are frequently shipped off to Bigtopia, the general public only knows their favorite politician's first name, putting a mustache on a banknote is considered defacing a national monument, and gigantic marble churches take up almost half the land area of small villages. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kustonia's national animal is the Vulture, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Guild Christianity.

Kustonia is ranked 222,561st in the world and 57th in Farkasfalka for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -295.6 on the Hayek Index.
