OverviewDispatchesPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Democratic States of Kistolia is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate population of 775 million Kistolians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Rucklesburg. The average income tax rate is 67.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kistolian economy, worth 74.1 trillion Kistoes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 95,671 Kistoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage, the delay between passed legislation and real world implementation is often a decade or longer, nude art is becoming wildly popular, and fiscal policy hawks decry the sizable "panem et circenses" fund added to the public budget. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kistolia's national animal is the Kistolian Blue Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kistolia is ranked 35,252nd in the world and 79th in Anteria for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,591 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
