The Disputed Territories of Nisastria is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Temalton the Great with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, irreverence towards religion, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.358 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rhotob. The average income tax rate is 78.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Nisastrian economy, worth 152 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 quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is 64,581 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Angry men scowl at each other across chess boards, the right school tie opens more doors than the right qualification, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, and stoned tourists don't tend to remember much about their holidays here. 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 82,883rd in the world and 4,709th in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 1,255.49 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
