The Oppressed Peoples of Kunstistan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Dr Lukas Kunst the Magnificent with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, digital currency, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.072 billion Kunstistanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sheorath. The average income tax rate is 40.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Kunstistanian economy, worth 117 trillion Kuins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 109,376 Kuins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

It ain't easy to be green enough to be imported into Kunstistan, the world outside is only known of in folklore, the needs of the living outweigh the needs of the dead, and hockey players who drop their gloves discard them on abandoned baseball mitts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kunstistan's national animal is the Cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kunstistan is ranked 122,317th in the world and 3,984th in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 1,516.24 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
