The Dominion of Minskyiv is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its fear of technology, pith helmet sales, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 339 million Minskyivians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 46.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Minskyivian economy, worth 8.68 trillion rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Cheese Exports, Uranium Mining, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 25,606 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail, troublemakers just happen to be reassigned to distant mining operations, black tea is only available on the black market, and legitimate job descriptions now include "smiling and waving". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Minskyiv's national animal is the walrus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Minskyiv is ranked 184,773rd in the world and 4,946th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Populations, with 339 million Capita.
