The Gamer's Republic of Soviet State of Ruthenia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Nikolas Sokolov with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The cynical population of 1.334 billion Ruthenians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kiev. The average income tax rate is 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Ruthenian economy, worth 99.2 trillion Ruthenian Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is 74,330 Ruthenian Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime, baby dolls thrown in the trash are a leading cause of panic attacks, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Soviet State of Ruthenia's national animal is the Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Communism.

Soviet State of Ruthenia is ranked 199,841st in the world and 503rd in The Communist Bloc for Fattest Citizens, with 7.91 Obesity Rate.
