The Free Russian Tzarists

Population603 million

AnimalImperial Eagle

The Empire of The Free Russian Tzarists is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, national health service, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 603 million Russians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 48.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Russian economy, worth 36.1 trillion rubles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 59,904 rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, police escort anti-abortion activists to free speech cages if they try to express their views, punitive tariffs protect local industry, and sociologists can charge whatever fee they like as the nation tries to find itself. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Free Russian Tzarists's national animal is the Imperial Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The Free Russian Tzarists is ranked 62,681st in the world and 1st in Earth for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 100.5 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
