The Constitutional Monarchy of Greater Ruthenian Empire is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its enslaved workforce, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 426 million Greater Ruthenians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kyiv. The average income tax rate is 31.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Greater Ruthenian Empirean economy, worth 58.0 trillion Grivnas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 136,194 Grivnas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions, Leader's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader, many friends and relatives of Leader have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, and bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Ruthenian Empire's national animal is the Nightingale, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Greater Ruthenian Empire is ranked 144,868th in the world and 870th in Europe for Nicest Citizens, with 0.78 Average Smiles Per Day.
