New Sistonia

Population4.386 billion

LeaderEmperor Sun Zheng
FaithChinese Folk Religion


The Sun Dynasty of New Sistonia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Sun Zheng with an even hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, national health service, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.386 billion Sistonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Luoyang. The average income tax rate is 75.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Sistonian economy, worth 512 trillion Shis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 116,824 Shis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield, endocrinology is a rapidly growing field of study, government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, and discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Sistonia's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Chinese Folk Religion.

New Sistonia is ranked 48,809th in the world and 12th in New West Indies for Most Authoritarian, with 990.56 milliStalins.
