|Leader||King Viktor Bale|
The Most Exalted Messar Kingdom of Rusliv is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Viktor Bale with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.089 billion Ruslivians 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 relatively small, 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 Sidioch. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.2%.
The very strong Ruslivian economy, worth 89.1 trillion Ruslivian Florins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 81,815 Ruslivian Florins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 244,487 per year while the poor average 21,420, a ratio of 11.4 to 1.
Former school buses now regularly shuttle kids to the nearest shopping centers to work, coffee-addicted citizens look forward to baristas getting their name wrong at local coffee shops, statue-sitting has replaced the stake-out as the dullest form of police duty, and King Viktor Bale has been self-declared as the Most Supreme Magnificent Overlord of Everything You Ever Saw. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rusliv's national animal is the Messarian Ram, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
