The National Syndicated Fiefdom of Kustonia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chancellor Lodved Rendhopp with an even hand, and renowned for its closed borders, state-planned economy, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, devout population of 12.444 billion Kustonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zonnox. The average income tax rate is 93.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kustonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,797 trillion Jūкs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 144,444 Jūкs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government confiscates candy from babies for 'the greater good' of the nation, engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", requests to "pass the salt" are supported by tank divisions, and Big Agriculture has the government by the nuts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kustonia's national animal is the Vulture, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Guild Christianity.

Kustonia is ranked 145,065th in the world and 23rd in Farkasfalka for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 225.85 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
