The Holy Empire of Bisht is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 320 million Bishtians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 27.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Bishtian economy, worth 17.1 trillion bishtoins a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 53,447 bishtoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Supermarket milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small-caliber bullets, citizens hear a diversity of opinions from a range of billionaire-owned corporations, 90% of active duty BAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones, and politicians are losing their jobs in a plan to make the government 'leaner and fitter'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bisht's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Bisht is ranked 88,551st in the world and 273rd in The Leftist Assembly for Most Developed, scoring 58.08 on the Human Development Index.
