The Empress of Russia of Catherine The Great is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Princess Sophie of Anhalt-Zerbst with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 19.007 billion Catherine The Greatians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Petersburg. The average income tax rate is 78.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Catherine The Greatian economy, worth a remarkable 4,852 trillion Rubles a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Woodchip Exports, Retail, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 255,315 Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

The public health bureaucracy is wrapped in miles of red tape, all astronauts are hot twenty-something models selected because they have 'the right stuff', grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them, and government adverts say that twelve lashes a day keeps divine wrath at bay. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Catherine The Great's national animal is the Russian Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Russian Orthodox.

Catherine The Great is ranked 2,759th in the world and 137th in NationStates for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 24,682.34 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
