The Upwards Regime of Omaskar is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Vyacheslav Voronov with an iron fist, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, avant-garde cinema, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.551 billion Omaslavs 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 Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Voronovagrad. The average income tax rate is 71.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Omaslav economy, worth 39.7 trillion Currencies 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 Uranium Mining, Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. 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 25,570 Currencies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Press conferences always end with standing ovations and rapturous applause, Vyacheslav Voronov has just been declared ruler of Omaskar in an international press conference, nobody thinks that the Godfather was bettered by Part 2, and ONE has been named as Omaskar's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Omaskar's national animal is the None, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is ONE.

Omaskar is ranked 220,446th in the world and 2nd in Gehsenna for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 135.51 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
