The Oligarchy of Vystrania is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Triumvirate with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 962 million Vystranians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Altema. The average income tax rate is 42.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Vystranian economy, worth 81.5 trillion Cartels a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is 84,765 Cartels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Many suspect that the 'Whinny The Plop' children's magazine contains covert criticism of Triumvirate, Max Barry is this year's Miss Vystrania, nine-year-olds' chat logs are scoured for evidence of radicalization, and Triumvirate's handshakes with opposition leaders usually lead to thumb wars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vystrania's national animal is the Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vystrania is ranked 177,420th in the world and 86th in Refugia for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.96 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
