The Communist Utopia of Nisastria is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Temalton the Great with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, soft-spoken computers, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.961 billion Nisastrians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rhotob. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Nisastrian economy, worth 614 trillion bitcoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. Average income is 77,126 bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nisastrian watches are often the only thing to survive a disaster intact, group hugs break out during floor votes, high school bands practice by moonlight, and modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nisastria's national animal is the merkat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nisastria is ranked 149,526th in the world and 6,698th in The North Pacific for Most Authoritarian, with 501.8 milliStalins.
