The Dictorial Metro Station of Kievskaya is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by General Alexei Petrenko with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.952 billion Kievskayans 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 government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kievskaya City. The average income tax rate is 68.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Kievskayan economy, worth 634 trillion Thalers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 106,536 Thalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Pro-democracy regime change has been avoided, anyone who so much as frowns is referred to a mental health unit, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, and government officials across Kievskaya are being "encouraged" to adopt Red Foxes to set an example for the populace. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kievskaya's national animal is the Red Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Metro 2033ism.
