Novaya Russiya

Population1.095 billion

LeaderPremier Cherdenko


The United Socialist States of Novaya Russiya is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Premier Cherdenko with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.095 billion Soviet Russians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rzhev. The average income tax rate is 72.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Russian economy, worth 92.9 trillion Rubleses 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 slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. 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 84,836 Rubleses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, visiting dignitaries make excuses to leave functions early and head to the nearest pub, serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk, and joggers are often arrested for breathing too heavily. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Novaya Russiya's national animal is the Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Novaya Russiya is ranked 115,898th in the world and 4,401st in Osiris for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 478.63 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
