The Union of Hystaiga is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory military service and irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 2.862 billion Hystaigans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 32.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Hystaigan economy, worth 105 trillion Pacific credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 37,024 Pacific credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, and vaccinations are mandatory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hystaiga's national animal is the jaguar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hystaiga is ranked 41,548th in the world and 1,843rd in the South Pacific for Most Secular, with 31.35 Atheism Rate.

Most Stationary: 759th in the region
