The Dictatorship of Choistan is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its smutty television, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 9.58 billion Choistanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Choistan City. The average income tax rate is 63.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Choistanian economy, worth a remarkable 5,950 trillion shekels a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is a breathtaking 621,157 shekels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Big Brother is still watching even when your big brother is dead, high school bands practice by moonlight, politicians have been known to swim in pools filled with shekels, and several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation. Crime is totally unknown. Choistan's national animal is the honey badger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Choistan is ranked 72,546th in the world and 3,579th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 74.04 Years.
