The Greater Federation of Cherkasov is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Roman Pozdnyakov with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, strictly enforced bedtime, and national health service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 6.029 billion Cherkasovians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Leska. The average income tax rate is 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cherkasovian economy, worth 867 trillion Cherkasovian Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 143,958 Cherkasovian Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Warfare increasingly resembles a video game, there's sophisticated talk of revolution within the ever-expanding mining colonies, religion is strictly forbidden within school grounds, and left-wing militias train children how to properly burn down banks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cherkasov's national animal is the Cherkasovian Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cherkasov is ranked 144,268th in the world and 43rd in New World Union for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -240.96 on the Hayek Index.
