The Slavo-Hellenica of Rusliv is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Viktor Bale with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.781 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sidioch. The average income tax rate is 44.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Ruslivian economy, worth 191 trillion Ruslivian Florins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 68,986 Ruslivian Florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
The new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", gun ownership is compulsory, corporations claim the third ounce of any metal traded in a wicker-cone on the Sunday of a full moon as a charitable expense, and advertisers scramble to sponsor the broadcast of Viktor Bale's most personal functions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rusliv's national animal is the Messarian Ibex, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Eastern Orthodoxy.
