The Free Land of Filistinia is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its hatred of cheese, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.564 billion Filistinians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Environment, and Education. The average income tax rate is 75.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Filistinian economy, worth 34.1 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Basket Weaving industry. Average income is 21,815 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Filistinia has designated Filistinia City as its capital city, Leader has just been declared ruler of Filistinia in an international press conference, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", and public intoxication has decreased ever since fraternities were banned. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Filistinia's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Filistinia is ranked 185,631st in the world and 6,047th in the South Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 31.93 Insults Per Minute.
