The Republic of Russyjka is a very large, orderly nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory military service, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 146 million Russyjkans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 20.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Russyjkan economy, worth 9.69 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Book Publishing, Retail, Gambling, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 66,340 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's youth would rather watch paint dry than the news, a popular saying is "a chicken for every pot and an abortion clinic on every street", invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, and most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Russyjka's national animal is the Polar Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Russyjka is ranked 177,527th in the world and 6,804th in The North Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 95 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
