The Empire of Russian Oil is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its daily referendums, parental licensing program, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 19.805 billion Russian Oilians 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 tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 14.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Russian Oilian economy, worth a remarkable 5,475 trillion Roubles a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 276,480 Roubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Powerful x-ray machines used by the Customs Department can see into the homes of nearby residents, the contraband cigarette trade is lighting up across Russian Oil, old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime, and endangered species are effective hostages against the Russian Oilian military. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Russian Oil's national animal is the Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Russian Oil is ranked 218,513th in the world and 8,447th in the South Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 4.86 Insults Per Minute.
