The Federal Ethnostate of Pandoska is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by President Edik Princev with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.924 billion Pandoskans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Veliky Tsaritsyn. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Pandoskan economy, worth a remarkable 2,114 trillion Federal Rubles a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 356,873 Federal Rubles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,129,724 per year while the poor average 86,012, a ratio of 13.1 to 1.

Wildlife parks are packed with poachers yet increasingly devoid of animals, flipping a coin to make a decision leads to a referral to Gambling Addiction Services, soldiers' positions are given away by the glint of their bayonets, and a common response to government PSAs is "well, DUH, obviously". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pandoska's national animal is the Tsar Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Pandoskan Orthodoxy.

Pandoska is ranked 3,449th in the world and 197th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 95.57 on the Human Development Index.
