The Disputed Territories of Nisastria is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Temalton the Great with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.778 billion Nisastrians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rhotob. The average income tax rate is 85.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Nisastrian economy, worth 417 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 quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is 72,309 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

A murderous reputation can revitalise a flagging celebrity career, the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Nisastria after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, and the Party has more splits than a yo-yo dieter's trousers. Crime 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 55,640th in the world and 2,808th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 2,597.2 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
