The Democratic States of Mistillania is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The President with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.702 billion Mistillanians 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Mistillania City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Mistillanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,009 trillion Mistis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 230,899 Mistis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, the nation was recently voted "most likely to betray its allies", hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, and the government now pays the "Really Awesome Super Heroes" (RASH) to catch evildoers. Crime is totally unknown. Mistillania's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnostic-Pantheism.

Mistillania is ranked 1,132nd in the world and 9th in Spiritus for Most Cultured, scoring 287 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
