The Empire of New Sistonia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Rafiq Emmereich with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.725 billion New 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 Isa. The average income tax rate is 75.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Sistonian economy, worth 318 trillion New Sistonian Dollars 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 New Sistonian Dollars, 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 Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Agnostic.

New Sistonia is ranked 16,900th in the world and 8th in New West Indies for Highest Poor Incomes, with 72,853.08 Standard Monetary Units.
