The Greater Tsardom of East Sakhlin is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Acting Regent Grand Duke Nikolai Rurikid with an iron fist, and remarkable for its national health service, avowedly heterosexual populace, and suspicion of poets. The hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.867 billion Sakhalinsks are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. The average income tax rate is 57.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient East Sakhlinian economy, worth 215 trillion Saks a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 115,290 Saks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens who use the word "Violet" incorrectly find their WhoTube content taken down, high school bands practice by moonlight, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, and explicit slash fiction is repackaged for kindergarten kids as stories about friends cuddling friends. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 Orthodox Christianity.

East Sakhlin is ranked 52,885th in the world and 2,148th in the South Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 2,197.79 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
