East Sakhlin

Population4.182 billion

LeaderKonstantin Rodzaevsky
FaithRussian Orthodox


The Gosduma of East Sakhlin is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Konstantin Rodzaevsky with an iron fist, and renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical, devout population of 4.182 billion Sakhalinsks are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aleksandrovsk-Sakhalinskiy. The average income tax rate is 72.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient East Sakhlinian economy, worth 506 trillion Saks a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 121,084 Saks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rumor has it that Konstantin Rodzaevsky has won three lotteries in a row, postcards from East Sakhlinian driving test centres are popular souvenirs, war vets look after war animals, and the police turn a blind eye to desecration if it's done in the name of religion or protest. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Sakhlin's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Russian Orthodox.

East Sakhlin is ranked 46,469th in the world and 971st in the South Pacific for Most Stationary, with 297.66417060592 Days.
