The Empire of Bistrostan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, devout population of 39.366 billion Bistrostanians 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 relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bistrostan City. The average income tax rate is 39.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bistrostanian economy, worth an astonishing 18,242 trillion drachmas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 463,412 drachmas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Exported livestock are wined and dined before they are flat ironed, the government is deliberately installing bloatware onto computers, human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants, and knock-knock jokes regularly get removed from websites for being too edgy. Crime is totally unknown. Bistrostan's national animal is the cheetah, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Bistrostan is ranked 456th in the world and 1st in The GameFAQs Forum for Most Beautiful Environments, with 6,052.34 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
