The National Syndicated Fiefdom of Kustonia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Chancellor Lodved Rendhopp with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, avant-garde cinema, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, devout population of 13.029 billion Kustonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zonnox. The average income tax rate is 94.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Kustonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,866 trillion Jūкs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 143,292 Jūкs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Diplomatic fallout tends to be much more dangerous than radioactive fallout, producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene, undersea volcanoes receive strongly worded letters for violating environmental regulations, and travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air Kustonia flights to avoid the pay lavatories. 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 4,670th in the world and 7th in The Decreeist Commonwealth for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 10,562.59 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
