The Crowned Autocratic Republic of The Tszar is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Tszar Mikhail I with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, free-roaming dinosaurs, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.924 billion Slava are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tszaritsyn. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Rusyn economy, worth a remarkable 1,078 trillion Vladas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 219,094 Vladas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 673,388 per year while the poor average 55,106, a ratio of 12.2 to 1.

Major internet servers have acquired citizenship, the military is researching proton packs and PK-meters to combat "unseen enemy forces", busy commuters no longer hear the cries of "I want some more!" on the nation's streets, and the fate of the world literally rests on Tszar Mikhail I's fingers. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Tszar's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Orthodox Cultural Civicism.

The Tszar is ranked 252,477th in the world and 61st in The Western Commonwealth for Safest, scoring 4.64 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
