Greater Ruthenian Empire

Population20 million


The Constitutional Monarchy of Greater Ruthenian Empire is a small, pleasant nation, renowned for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 20 million Greater Ruthenian Empireans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.6%.

The strong Greater Ruthenian Empirean economy, worth 1.43 trillion Grivnas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 71,629 Grivnas, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly, shivering secretaries type letters under torrential downpours in open-roof offices, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, and kids' party bags often contain candy and e-cigarettes. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Ruthenian Empire's national animal is the Nightingale, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Greater Ruthenian Empire is ranked 142,988th in the world and 953rd in Europe for Nudest, with 52.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
