The Dictorial Metro Station of Kievskaya is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by General Alexei Petrenko with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.992 billion Kievskayans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Defence, although Education and the Environment are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kievskaya City. The average income tax rate is 83%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.
Mandatory electronic currency is a boon for credit card companies and government surveillance, pro-democracy regime change has been avoided, anyone who so much as frowns is referred to a mental health unit, and foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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, its national religion is Metro 2033ism, and its currency is the Thaler.
Kievskaya is ranked 180th in 10000 Islands and 7,875th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with 562 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
