The Federal Ethnostate of Pandoska is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by President Edik Princev with an iron fist, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, avowedly heterosexual populace, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.425 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, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Veliky Tsaritsyn. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Pandoskan economy, worth 875 trillion Federal Rubles a year, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 255,764 Federal Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

The tenet of free speech is held dear, the mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying, politicians accepting drinks in bars are executed for taking bribes, and nephews and nieces of the monarch resort to begging from relatives in palace halls. 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 116,126th in the world and 6,400th in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 26.27 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
