The Disputed Territories of Nisastria is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Temalton the Great with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.434 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 79.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Nisastrian economy, worth 248 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 72,242 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 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 36,887th in the world and 1,818th in The North Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 41,532.3 Standard Monetary Units.
