The Basically just a Military of Puzikas is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by General-Tsar Iosef Putin with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, daily referendums, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 13.61 billion Conscripts have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moscow. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.2%.

The powerhouse Puzikasian economy, worth a remarkable 1,688 trillion Hryvnias a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 124,055 Hryvnias, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

Restaurants are required to specify whether their toilet paper was made in Puzikas, teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries, the citizenship exam requires years of study to actually pass, and glamping Conscripts won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Puzikas's national animal is the Tu160M, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Machine Cult of the V8.

Puzikas is ranked 77,801st in the world and 3,350th in Lazarus for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 520.79 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
