The Commonwealth of Nistriabar is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Viceroy with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, national health service, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.47 billion Nistrians, 23 million of whom are zombies, enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mako. The average income tax rate is 57.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nistriabarian economy, worth 206 trillion Nistrian Pounds a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 140,671 Nistrian Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Most of the military's funding goes into researching space-age weaponry, internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Nistriabarian weed picker are way up, politicians stage photo ops featuring barely functional fighter jets, and picnickers are lucky if a few wasps are the only animals that trouble them. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nistriabar's national animal is the White Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is State Atheism.

Nistriabar is ranked 208,946th in the world and 11,594th in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.56 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
