The United Socialist States of Malkotistan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Peter Obrenovic with an even hand, and notable for its parental licensing program, compulsory military service, and state-planned economy. The compassionate population of 2.961 billion Malkotistanis are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Laktavia. The average income tax rate is 89.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Malkotistani economy, worth 308 trillion Malkovs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 104,092 Malkovs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, the national security service are a bunch of crooks, it takes at least three to tango, and in the Beginning was the Word and the Word was "Pragmatism". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Malkotistan's national animal is the Vulture, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Malkotistan is ranked 194,695th in the world and 7,494th in the South Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -89.25 on the Rand Index.
