LeaderIvan Kovalenko


The Dastardly Driveling Delegate of Minskiev is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Ivan Kovalenko with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, unlimited-speed roads, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.54 billion Minskievians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kyiv. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Minskievian economy, worth a remarkable 1,514 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. 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 amazing 333,552 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Walrus is one of the most popular forenames in Minskiev, Ivan Kovalenko has been nicknamed 'Robomop', the justice of Minskiev is considered superior to that of other nations, and requests to "pass the salt" are supported by tank divisions. Crime is totally unknown. Minskiev's national animal is the walrus, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Zyonnism.

Minskiev is ranked 2,565th in the world and 72nd in the Rejected Realms for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 11,442.77 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
