The Incorporated States of Losiste is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 1.103 billion Losisteans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 57.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Losistean economy, worth 138 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 125,712 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", people who stay late at the office often come home to find their own funeral being planned, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, and abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Losiste's national animal is the falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Losiste is ranked 160,157th in the world and 6,587th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -2.05 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
