|Leader||Premiere Anton Sokolov|
The Siberian SSR of Volossiya is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Premiere Anton Sokolov with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 1.218 billion Sibiri are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novosibirsk. The average income tax rate is 66.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Siberian economy, worth 44.9 trillion Eurasian Rubles 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 Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 36,897 Eurasian Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Troublemakers just happen to be reassigned to distant mining operations, Premiere Anton Sokolov is the self-declared God of all Volossiya, preschoolers practice disarming active shooters before naptime, and the navy plans patrols according to how many pubs nearby ports have. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Volossiya's national animal is the Siberian Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.
