The Post-volcanic Islands of Nistriabar is a massive, genial nation, ruled by The Prime Alderman with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.452 billion Nistrians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mako. The average income tax rate is 76.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nistriabarian economy, worth 415 trillion Nistis a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 169,439 Nistis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The newest shade developed by Nistriabar's dye industry has been dubbed 'Agent Orange', parents often leave their kids in the car while they attend mindfulness meditation sessions, a new "thought police" branch is being developed, and every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nistriabar's national animal is the White Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is State Atheism.

Nistriabar is ranked 7,572nd in the world and 421st in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,859.8 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
