The State Tsardom of Intresha is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Vozhd Duscha Morozov with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.411 billion Intreshans 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, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Antarsk. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28.2%.

The thriving Intreshan economy, worth 136 trillion Rubles 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 large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. 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 96,622 Rubles, with the richest citizens earning 8.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government is paving paradises to put up parking lots, the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, The Very Hungry Caterpillar has been banned for advocating gluttony, and hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Intresha's national animal is the Black Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Orthodox Christianity.

Intresha is ranked 144,137th in the world and 9th in Union of Sovereign Satellite Republics for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -5.83 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
