The Tsardom of Rossiean is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Tsar Nicholas III with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.583 billion Rossieans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bogdavod. The average income tax rate is 70.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Rossieanian economy, worth 96.1 trillion Rossiean Rubbles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 37,206 Rossiean Rubbles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued, lip-readers are often left perplexed by political rallies, there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, and foreign policy is to avoid standing up to bullies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rossiean's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Jussianism.

Rossiean is ranked 63,512th in the world and 13th in Coldonia for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 2,656.82 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
