The Allied States of Bistritza is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, infamous sell-swords, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 390 million Bistritzans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Environment and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ohrid. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Bistritzan economy, worth 40.7 trillion Coin Silvers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 104,440 Coin Silvers, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 400,022 per year while the poor average 18,821, a ratio of 21.3 to 1.

In life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, the government builds houses for foreign newcomers, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, and most pop videos prominently feature the Bistritzan flag. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Bistritza's national animal is the Villa, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Bistritza is ranked 231,480th in the world and 9,281st in the South Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 86.62 percentage of bribes refused.
