The Republic of Vayanskaya is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Kiril Blokhin with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, devout population of 7.122 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 1,011 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 22,145th in the world and 1,199th in Lazarus for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 14,000.91 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
