The Queendom of Empress Catherine II is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its frequent executions, prohibition of alcohol, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 674 million Russians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Petersburg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 51.7%.

The strong Russian economy, worth 42.5 trillion Rubles a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 63,112 Rubles, with the richest citizens earning 7.2 times as much as the poorest.

Personal injury lawyers are demanding compensation from the government after recent reductions in manufacturer liability, scaffolding is built around scaffolding to give safe access, the average person needs three full-time jobs just to get by, and Leader's new android secretary is the latest media darling. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Empress Catherine II's national animal is the Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Empress Catherine II is ranked 119,236th in the world and 6th in Russia for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 397.68 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
