The Respublika of Zemnaya Svoboda is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by President Minister Kerenskij with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 17.675 billion Zemnaya Svobodans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Education, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Petrograd. The average income tax rate is 67%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Gambling, Information Technology, and Book Publishing industries.
The breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in Zemnaya Svoboda, parents are held criminally responsible for their children's crimes, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, and all new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers. Crime is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zemnaya Svoboda's national animal is the bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Orthodox Christianity, and its currency is the kopek.
