The Dictorial Metro Station of Kievskaya is a massive, safe nation, ruled by General Alexei Petrenko with an iron fist, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.25 billion 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Defence, although Education and Commerce 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 78%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Tourism.
Citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages, a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and all new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers. 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.
