The United Socialist States of Narodskaya is a large, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, state-planned economy, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The cynical, devout population of 93 million Narodskayans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 71.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Narodskayan economy, worth 2.13 trillion Norodilyas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 22,897 Norodilyas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Shelters struggle to keep up with the endless intake of stray animals, male friends are often accompanied by a female relative in order to prove their 'straightness', there's never a spare chair in the retirement home, and the military conducts 'training exercises' in prisons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Narodskaya's national animal is the bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Narodskaya is ranked 136,192nd in the world and 120th in Spiritus for Most Armed, with 0.22 Weapons Per Person.
