The New Soviet Union of Rusthenia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Premier Vassili Karantiro with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 1.053 billion Soviet Rusthenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Defense, Environment, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moscow. The average income tax rate is 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Soviet Rusthenian economy, worth 121 trillion Soviet Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 115,568 Soviet Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in Rusthenia, shelters struggle to keep up with the endless intake of stray animals, the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, and the mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rusthenia's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Vassili Karantiro's Cult of Personally.

Rusthenia is ranked 9,861st in the world and 16th in The Great Red Union for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 10,207.41 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
