The Rogue Nation of DiSistan is a fledgling, genial nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 5 million DiSistanians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Welfare, although Education, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 71.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The basket case DiSistanian economy, worth 31.2 billion IndiePoints 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 Pizza Delivery industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Soda Sales, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 6,234 IndiePoints, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. DiSistan’s national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation’s many lush forests.
