The Unbreakable Union of Shrussian is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Igor Velensky with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, enslaved workforce, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 965 million Shrussians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Frandurd. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Shrussianian economy, worth 159 trillion Dineros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 164,892 Dineros, with the richest citizens earning 7.9 times as much as the poorest.

Business leaders commend the government for enacting an emissions reduction strategy that reduces no Shrussianian emissions at all, the Hanging Gardens account for half of Frandurd's water use, Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, and maximum security Shrussianian subway stations inspire prison systems around the world. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shrussian's national animal is the Honey Badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Shrussian is ranked 228,772nd in the world and 58th in Ridgefield for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 44.79 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
