The Dictatorship of Choistan is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 9.838 billion Choistanians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Choistan City. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Choistanian economy, worth a remarkable 6,192 trillion shekels a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is a breathtaking 629,448 shekels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Faithful allies are always valued, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, helium balloons lift the nation's spacecraft towards the heavens, and traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways. Crime is totally unknown. Choistan's national animal is the honey badger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Choistan is ranked 173rd in the world and 6th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 18,058.2 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
