The Constitutional Republic of Lhistonia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Konagher with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.742 billion Lhistonians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lhistavia. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Lhistonian economy, worth 501 trillion kodeks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 105,710 kodeks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The comic book series 'President Konagher and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, the justice of Lhistonia is considered superior to that of other nations, and the seventh son of a seventh son is fated to be a millionaire. 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 21,359th in the world and 1,081st in Lazarus for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 97.21 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
