The 3rd Constitutional Republic of Lhistonia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Gavorsky with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.539 billion Lhistonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lhistavia. The average income tax rate is 93.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lhistonian economy, worth 246 trillion kodeks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 97,108 kodeks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, copyright laws have been abolished, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Lhistavia Times is sold out, and Book Publishing facilities are being turned into Fenix habitats. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lhistonia's national animal is the Fenix, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lhistonia is ranked 167,031st in the world and 29th in The Parliamentary Union of Nations for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -17.61 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
