The United Republic of Rossiyan union is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ross Slotboom with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.668 billion Rossiyans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rossopolis. The average income tax rate is 86.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Rossiyan unionian economy, worth 725 trillion Rossiyan Drachesses a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 83,677 Rossiyan Drachesses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Tourists are forbidden to enter Native Rossiyan unionian lands, sections of the police receive paramilitary training, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, and politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rossiyan union's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Modern Hellenism.
