The Empire of Bistrostan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, devout population of 38.051 billion Bistrostanians 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 government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bistrostan City. The average income tax rate is 1.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bistrostanian economy, worth an astonishing 17,146 trillion drachmas a year, is fairly diversified and 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 450,613 drachmas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery, self-driving cars obey the road rules even during emergencies, a burger chain recently changed its name to Mack Donaldz for legal reasons, and companies have begun running campaigns to stop people from remembering their brand name. Crime is totally unknown. Bistrostan's national animal is the cheetah, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Bistrostan is ranked 693rd in the world and 1st in The GameFAQs Forum for Lowest Crime Rates, with 171.48 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
