The Empire of Bistrostan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 36.532 billion Bistrostanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bistrostan City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Bistrostanian economy, worth an astonishing 15,922 trillion drachmas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 435,846 drachmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, exceptionally talented workers are praised more than Revolutionary heroes, jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, and the government's foreign policy statements are less threatening than a World Assembly cease-and-desist letter. Crime is totally unknown. Bistrostan's national animal is the cheetah, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Bistrostan is ranked 206,142nd in the world and 1st in The GameFAQs Forum for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -25.73 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
