The Holy Intergalactic Empire of HYDRA-Russian Empire is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by God-Emperor Peter IV with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.947 billion HYDRA-Russians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Petrograd. The average income tax rate is 92.8%.

The frighteningly efficient HYDRA-Russian economy, worth a remarkable 2,343 trillion Roubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 235,597 Roubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, babysitters are a thing of the past, the latest political memes depict God-Emperor Peter IV as an overly-choreographed robot, and military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. HYDRA-Russian Empire's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Russian Orthodox Christianity.

HYDRA-Russian Empire is ranked 40,855th in the world and 401st in Europe for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,896.02 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
