The Empire of Putinskaya is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Vladimir I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.477 billion Putinskayans 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 juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ursus Forti. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 42.1%.

The strong Putinskayan economy, worth 88.3 trillion Kredits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 59,769 Kredits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 197,948 per year while the poor average 13,480, a ratio of 14.7 to 1.

Small patches of desolate land across the world are part of Putinskayan sovereign territory, ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail, and veterans are directed into environmental cleanup operations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Putinskaya's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Putinism.

Putinskaya is ranked 27,917th in the world and 1,280th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,850.52 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
