The Soviet Socialist Republic of Plesetskaia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, public floggings, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.02 billion Plesetskaians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arkhangelsk. The average income tax rate is 67.2%.

The powerhouse Plesetskaian economy, worth 308 trillion Rubles 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. 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 an impressive 152,890 Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Arkhangelsk, news headlines suggest that Leader has a sideline in guinea pig pimping, and residents of houses built on a foundation of wishful thinking are prone to an odd sinking feeling. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Plesetskaia's national animal is the Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Plesetskaia is ranked 12,851st in the world and 4th in The New Order Last days of Europe for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,338.39 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
