The Communist Utopia of Nisastria is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Temalton the Great with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.849 billion Nisastrians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 Rhotob. The average income tax rate is 93.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Nisastrian economy, worth a remarkable 1,114 trillion bitcoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 94,084 bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, citizens are remarkably well involved in the political process, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, and bike rage is all the rage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nisastria's national animal is the merkat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nisastria is ranked 228,347th in the world and 9,897th in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -8.38 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
