The United Socialist Republics of Sietsk is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Mikhail Siekmeshko with an iron fist, and renowned for its digital currency, triple-decker prams, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.99 billion Sietskians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vedrupol. The average income tax rate is 86.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Sietskian economy, worth 690 trillion Sietskian Crowns a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 115,312 Sietskian Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Movie producers send film critics wads of cash in their morning newspapers in anticipation of gushing praise, the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, frightened witnesses and seriously ill jurors wear the same handcuffs as the defendant, and immersive video game experiences are interrupted by incessant disclaimer pop-ups. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sietsk's national animal is the grizzly bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Orthodoxy.

Sietsk is ranked 135,897th in the world and 86th in APSIA for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 15,682.54 Standard Monetary Units.
