The Holy Intergalactic Empire of HYDRA-Russian Empire is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by God-Emperor Peter IV with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.134 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Petrograd. The average income tax rate is 93.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient HYDRA-Russian economy, worth a remarkable 3,349 trillion Rubles 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, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. 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 276,053 Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.
The disabled are forced to undergo an MRI scan every time they pick up their benefit payments, nations that kill a HYDRA-Russian can expect a strongly worded letter, the police think a properly conducted criminal investigation is a real pain, and extraordinary rendition is nothing out of the ordinary. 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.
