The Commonwealth of Russellshire is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, restrictive gun laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 331 million Russellshireans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.8%.

The strong Russellshirean economy, worth 20.9 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 62,998 pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 204,715 per year while the poor average 14,613, a ratio of 14.0 to 1.

Jennifer Government is banned, the diplomatic corps tends to open negotiations by insulting all the foreigners in the room, the government is outsourcing itself, and when flight control tells pilots to alter course the usual reply is "No, YOU move!". Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Russellshire's national animal is the unicorn, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Russellshire is ranked 134,063rd in the world and 135th in Byzantion for Safest, scoring 66.76 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
