The Oppressed Peoples of Kunstistan is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Dr Lukas Kunst the Magnificent with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 756 million Kunstistanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sheorath. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.6%.

The all-consuming Kunstistanian economy, worth 77.9 trillion Kuins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Trout Farming, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 103,049 Kuins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 351,511 per year while the poor average 22,237, a ratio of 15.8 to 1.

A man's 250 square-foot apartment is his castle, the typical murderer weighs 150kg and has hairy arms, bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble, and victims of limb-mauling industrial accidents are told to keep working with their remaining hand. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kunstistan's national animal is the Cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kunstistan is ranked 40,334th in the world and 893rd in The East Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 4.17 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
