The National Syndicated Fiefdom of Kustonia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Chancellor Lodved Rendhopp with an even hand, and renowned for its closed borders, pith helmet sales, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, devout population of 12.663 billion Kustonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zonnox. The average income tax rate is 94.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kustonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,798 trillion Jūкs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 141,988 Jūкs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's an aura of pseudoscience around academia, high-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, and criminal convictions are routinely thrown out because the accused's grandmother didn't get to testify about their good character. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kustonia's national animal is the Vulture, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Guild Christianity.

Kustonia is ranked 102,014th in the world and 55th in Farkasfalka for Most Extreme, scoring 19.26 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
