The Communist Utopia of Nisastria is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Temalton the Great with an even hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.197 billion Nisastrians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rhotob. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Nisastrian economy, worth 643 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 highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. Average income is 78,449 bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals, and would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 132,064th in the world and 3,264th in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 125 billion Standard Monetary Units.
