The Communist Utopia of Nisastria is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Temalton the Great with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.961 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 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Nisastrian economy, worth 717 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 80,109 bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It ain't easy to be green enough to be imported into Nisastria, NPCs in MMORPGs regularly interrupt cutscenes with OOC reminders that they aren't real people, high school band practice is often crashed by technicolor-clad ravers, and the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics. 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 75,274th in the world and 3,443rd in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 70.57 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
