The United Socialist States of Karlovich is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 408 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moscow. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 46.4%.

The all-consuming Russian economy, worth 45.6 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. 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 an impressive 111,683 Rubles, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's reputation for treachery has left it sidelined on the international stage, the military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan, cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, and carpet bombing has decimated Brasilistan's landscape and population. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karlovich's national animal is the Smirnoff, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Karlovich is ranked 95,172nd in the world and 17th in United States of UBG for Highest Economic Output, with 45.6 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
