The Communist Utopia of Nisastria is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Temalton the Great with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.21 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 91.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Nisastrian economy, worth 746 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is 81,009 bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Each infantry rifle comes pre-loaded with a single white carnation in the barrel, 3D printed organs are a breath of new life for the sick and elderly, the long arm of the law possesses a rather slow hand, and dinner parties often end in politically charged fist fights. 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 27,300th in the world and 1,397th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 77.19 on the Human Development Index.
