The Trans-Ural Kleptocracy

LeaderThe Central Committee

CurrencyTransural Ruble

The United Consortium of The Trans-Ural Kleptocracy is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Central Committee with an iron fist, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, vat-grown people, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.739 billion Uralians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rublegrad. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Trans-Ural Kleptocracyian economy, worth 303 trillion Transural Rubles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 174,616 Transural Rubles, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,597,970 per year while the poor average 2,057, a ratio of 776 to 1.

The government is encouraging violence on television, photos of picturesque coastal buildings are set against a backdrop of smokestacks and ship hulls, chrome-clad space marines are such stuff that dreams are made on, and a decrease in wailing and gnashing of teeth at astronomical events is reducing demand for dentistry. Crime is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Trans-Ural Kleptocracy's national animal is the Snake, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Trans-Ural Kleptocracy is ranked 268,731st in the world and 28th in The New Order Last days of Europe for Most Beautiful Environments, with 3.01 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
