The Federal Republic of Cossack Peoples is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Principle Chairman Vadimir Bezukhov with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, flagrant waste-dumping, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.311 billion Cossacks are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Krasnoyarsk. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Cossack economy, worth 526 trillion bills a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 228,017 bills, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 876,687 per year while the poor average 40,838, a ratio of 21.5 to 1.

Agricultural science is the most competitive subject at universities, the television adaptation of Jennifer Government is the most popular program in the nation, garbage bags floating down the river are churned up by man-made rapids, and copyright laws have been abolished. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cossack Peoples's national animal is the Black Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Cossack Peoples is ranked 227,113th in the world and 8,410th in Lazarus for Least Corrupt Governments, with 12.78 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
