The Dictorial Metro Station of Kievskaya is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by General Alexei Petrenko with an iron fist, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.526 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.
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 on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kievskaya City. The average income tax rate is 84%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.
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 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.
