Location: The North Pacific
The Respublika of Zemnaya Svoboda is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Minister Kerenskij with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 17.076 billion are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
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 62%. 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.
