Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Disputed Territories of Nisastria is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Temalton the Great with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 1.598 billion Nisastrians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rhotob. The average income tax rate is 69.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Nisastrian economy, worth 64.3 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 Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 40,254 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders, cancer rates amongst the richest in society are inexplicably on the rise, tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Nisastria Blood Tithe, and drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government. Crime 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 50,316th in the world and 2,694th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 3,257.41 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
