The Democratic Republic of Dont come here-istan is a very large, cultured nation, notable for its public floggings, strictly enforced bedtime, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, devout population of 179 million Dont come here-istanians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The relatively small, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Education. The average income tax rate is 21.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Dont come here-istanian economy, worth 9.65 trillion moss pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 53,901 moss pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children, tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, immigrants are required to salute the flag five times a day, and the weather report is the prisoners' favourite programme. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Dont come here-istan's national animal is the naked mole rat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dont come here-istan is ranked 40,902nd in the world and 33rd in Realm of the Whispering Winds for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 117.21 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
