“God Save the Tzar !”

The Tzarist Republic of Cpsu is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Vladik Komorov with an iron fist, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.985 billion are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Minsk. The average income tax rate is 93%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
Jails have become colloquially known as 'vampire houses', the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, motorists' locations are constantly tracked by intelligence and law enforcement agencies, and the government is spending billions of Dumas on helping citizens find spiritual enlightenment. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cpsu's national animal is the Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Duma.
