The Empire of Bistrostan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cheerful, devout population of 40.671 billion Bistrostanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Administration, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bistrostan City. The average income tax rate is 53.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bistrostanian economy, worth an astonishing 19,180 trillion drachmas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 471,600 drachmas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts, the consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award, vegetables are crisper thanks to CRISPR, and glamping Bistrostanians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi. Crime is totally unknown. Bistrostan's national animal is the cheetah, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Bistrostan is ranked 42nd in the world and 1st in The GameFAQs Forum for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 78,569.26 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
