The Council Republic of Greater Istanistan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Steering Committee with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and vat-grown people. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 15.81 billion Istanistanis enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tannhauser. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Istanistani economy, worth a remarkable 6,805 trillion Kronens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 430,482 Kronens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Greater Istanistan has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, policy reversals are more often graceful demi-détournés than u-turns, and a sledgehammer and a spray can are seen as the default tools of political debate. Crime is totally unknown. Greater Istanistan's national animal is the Foreign Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Shining Way.

Greater Istanistan is ranked 207,873rd in the world and 45th in The Universal Order of Nations for Most Primitive, scoring -1520.47 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
