The Imperial Holy Empire of Russlande is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tsarina Alara with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, complete absence of social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 12.771 billion Russens have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Petersburg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Russen economy, worth a remarkable 2,233 trillion Rubles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 174,919 Rubles, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Napalm is the tool of choice for disabling eco-unfriendly forestry operations, foreign musicians that Tsarina Alara dislikes are turned away at the border, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, and fruit pickers with degrees in Black Bear psychology are a common sight. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Russlande's national animal is the Black Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Russen Orthodox.

Russlande is ranked 100,666th in the world and 27th in Meillur for Most Pro-Market, scoring 48.22 on the Rand Index.
