The Allied States of Nestonian is a huge, genial nation, notable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 311 million Nestonianians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 75.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Nestonianian economy, worth 9.02 trillion Ws a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 29,002 Ws, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, saying the word 'eggplant' is now a criminal offense, and the nation continues to depend on foreigners for food. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nestonian's national animal is the Tigerfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Nestonian is ranked 183,371st in the world and 9,038th in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -6.2 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
