The Democratic People's Republic of Trans-Dniesters is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Field Marshal Stepan Stepanenko with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and absence of drug laws. The cynical population of 11.787 billion Pridnestrovians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Tiraspol. The average income tax rate is 67.9%.

The Pridnestrovian economy, worth 375 trillion Pridnestrovian 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 a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Cheese Exports. 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 31,820 Pridnestrovian rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, Field Marshal Stepan Stepanenko has just been declared ruler of Trans-Dniesters in an international press conference, and the fire protection service is wholly government-funded. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Trans-Dniesters's national animal is the moeritherium, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is state-sponsored atheism.

Trans-Dniesters is ranked 109,457th in the world and 59th in Rushmore for Most Income Equality, scoring 22.64 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
