The Friendly Christian Republic of Russila is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Ross Lee Hickman III with an even hand, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, compulsory military service, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 5.41 billion Russilans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rossland. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Russilan economy, worth 689 trillion Russilan Bitcoins a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 127,420 Russilan Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, for just a few extra Russilan Bitcoins Russilans can get new driving records with their new cars, politicians and casino owners who so much as wander into the same room are arrested on the spot, and advertisers are struggling to make water sound cool to a twitchy public. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Russila's national animal is the Rabbit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Russila is ranked 4,442nd in the world and 252nd in The North Pacific for Nicest Citizens, with 49.61 average smiles per day.
