The Federation of ImperialRussia is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by General Sergei Izotov with an iron fist, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, compulsory military service, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 907 million Russians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moscow. The average income tax rate is 77.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Russian economy, worth 139 trillion Bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 153,550 Bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Joggers are often arrested for breathing too heavily, General Sergei Izotov's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, and formerly fertile fields are being leached dry of nutrients by intensive farming. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ImperialRussia's national animal is the Giant Grizzly Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

ImperialRussia is ranked 18,888th in the world and 76th in Wintreath for Most Cultured, scoring 86 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
