The People's Republic of Ustekistan is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Snoke with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and national health service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.885 billion Ustekistanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ustekistan city. The average income tax rate is 82.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ustekistanian economy, worth 427 trillion Rubles 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 dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 148,112 Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

On-duty Air Ustekistan flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class, customs officials often double as wedding officiants, military spending is on the increase, and a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ustekistan's national animal is the Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Ustekistan is ranked 54,144th in the world and 2,258th in Lazarus for Safest, scoring 98.71 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
