The People's Republic of North Sachalin is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Artyom Nikolajevich Bukharin with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 5.085 billion North Sachalinians are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Artyomgrad. The average income tax rate is 75.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant North Sachalinian economy, worth 99.5 trillion северные деньгиs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 19,573 северные деньгиs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, Artyom Nikolajevich Bukharin has just been declared ruler of North Sachalin in an international press conference, and North Sachalin has designated Artyomgrad as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Sachalin's national animal is the Gray whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Orthodox Christianity.

North Sachalin is ranked 231,087th in the world and 14th in Altay for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -9.63 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
