The Russian Federation of Schestob is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Imran Zakhaev with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, unlimited-speed roads, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 16.493 billion Russians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Administration, with Education, Industry, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moscow. Income tax is unheard of.

The all-consuming Russian economy, worth a remarkable 3,541 trillion Bitcoins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 214,744 Bitcoins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 650,063 per year while the poor average 55,199, a ratio of 11.8 to 1.

Folk singers have replaced personal injury lawyers in being ridiculed as "ambulance chasers", wildlife near farms is slowly becoming extinct, the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, and the nation's counterintelligence budget is all up in the air. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Schestob's national animal is the Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is None.

Schestob is ranked 29,327th in the world and 30th in Carcassonne for Most Pro-Market, scoring 86.33 on the Rand Index.
