The 2nd Constitutional Republic of Lhistonia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President Gavorsky with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.463 billion Lhistonians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

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 94.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Lhistonian economy, worth 342 trillion kodeks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 98,866 kodeks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors, the "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture, cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, and the tightness of border controls in Lhistonia leave a little to be desired. 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 176,874th in the world and 12th in The Parliamentary Union of Nations for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -18.49 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
