The Hypnocracy of Vistamar is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Hypnotoad with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory vegetarianism. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 23.236 billion Vistamarians 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 large government is primarily concerned with Education, with Industry, Welfare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Healthcare and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hypnosis. The average income tax rate is 40.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Vistamarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,564 trillion HypnoDollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 67,323 HypnoDollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, and the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vistamar's national animal is the Psychedelic Toad, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hypnotoad-ism.

Vistamar is ranked 180,435th in the world and 4,308th in Balder for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.34 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
