The Republic of Vayanskaya is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Kiril Blokhin with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, devout population of 7.604 billion Vayanskayans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moscow. The average income tax rate is 81.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vayanskayan economy, worth a remarkable 1,080 trillion Krayas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 142,089 Krayas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Broken suspension systems are giving auto repair shops plenty of business, there's never enough space in space, all government communication requires the imprimatur of the Truth Police, and state dairy cow's milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small caliber bullets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vayanskaya's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.

Vayanskaya is ranked 92,014th in the world and 2,956th in Lazarus for Most Extreme, scoring 16.87 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
