The Post-volcanic Islands of Nistriabar is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Prime Alderman with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.489 billion Nistrians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mako. The average income tax rate is 76.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nistriabarian economy, worth 425 trillion Nistis a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 170,860 Nistis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals, increasing numbers of children in Nistriabar have different eye and hair color to their supposed fathers, criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, and White Shark is one of the most popular forenames in Nistriabar. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nistriabar's national animal is the White Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is State Atheism.

Nistriabar is ranked 6,593rd in the world and 417th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 92.6 on the Human Development Index.
