The Volcanic Islands of Nistriabar is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Prime Alderman with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.897 billion Nistrians 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 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nistriabarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,013 trillion Nistis a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 206,977 Nistis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government is deliberately installing bloatware onto computers, The Prime Alderman has been nicknamed 'Robomop', dreams of entering the Super League have been relegated to the history books, and posters on 'Nistriabarian Values' advise against being proud of Nistriabar. 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 57,702nd in the world and 2,634th in The North Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 2,728.34 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
