The Communist Federation of Misthas is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Levim Adlov with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.718 billion Mistasis love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rasvalin. The average income tax rate is 99.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Misthasian economy, worth a remarkable 1,807 trillion Einteils a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 269,024 Einteils, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, funny-looking kids are stood at the front of the classroom for everybody to point and laugh at, and students learn how to disarm mines before understanding basic arithmetic. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Misthas's national animal is the Ikha, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is state atheism.

Misthas is ranked 48,374th in the world and 2,598th in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 3,879.71 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
