The Empire of Bistrostan is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and national health service. The hard-nosed, devout population of 40.398 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, with Healthcare, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, 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 65.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bistrostanian economy, worth an astonishing 19,061 trillion drachmas a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 471,833 drachmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Some Bistrostanian athletes have defected to Blackacre after being denied the chance to compete in international sporting events, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents, and blackface performers claim they are being deliberately ironic. Crime is totally unknown. Bistrostan's national animal is the cheetah, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Bistrostan is ranked 108th in the world and 1st in The GameFAQs Forum for Smartest Citizens, with 413.66 quips per hour.
