The Empire of Russian Oil is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, daily referendums, and avant-garde cinema. The compassionate, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 21.999 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Russian Oilian economy, worth a remarkable 7,439 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 reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 338,170 Roubles, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,419,890 per year while the poor average 52,342, a ratio of 27.1 to 1.

The arms industry is backed by government subsidies and harsh anti-protest laws are in place, prisoners due for execution often use their final statement to complain about soggy bread rolls, citizens who leave the nation for work are instantly charged with treason, and there's an aura of pseudoscience around academia. 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 130,722nd in the world and 4,756th in the South Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 317.63 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
