The Disputed Territories of Nisastria is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Temalton the Great with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.327 billion Nisastrians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

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 82.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Nisastrian economy, worth 297 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 major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is 68,756 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise, commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, and it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma. 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 79,595th in the world and 4,085th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 110,043.29 Standard Monetary Units.
