New Rusviet People Federation

Population382 million


The United Socialist States of New Rusviet People Federation is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 382 million New Rusviet People Federationians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 73.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant New Rusviet People Federationian economy, worth 3.86 trillion Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 10,107 Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Incarcerated crime lords manage their empires from massage tables, old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime, the institution of marriage is held sacred and strictly enforced, and the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Rusviet People Federation's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Rusviet People Federation is ranked 39,721st in the world and 1,728th in The East Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 29.29 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
