The Federal Republic of Cossack Peoples is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Principle Chairman Vadimir Bezukhov with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, national health service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.884 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, although Industry, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Krasnoyarsk. The average income tax rate is 74.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Cossack economy, worth 696 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 241,461 bills, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Summer science camps are regularly raided by narcotics police, leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, and military spending is on the increase. 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 235,842nd in the world and 8,393rd in Lazarus for Most Pacifist, with 2.7 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
