The Constitutional Republic of Lhistonia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Konagher with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.384 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, 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 460 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 104,933 kodeks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The fire protection service is wholly government-funded, the acceptance of acupuncture and other alternative therapies has needled the scientific community, criminal rehabilitation takes place in re-education centers, and Bigtopian relations have become a minefield. 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 138,975th in the world and 5th in The Parliamentary Union of Nations for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -5.14 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
