The Federal Ethnostate of Pandoska is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by President Edik Princev with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.42 billion Pandoskans 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 prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Veliky Tsaritsyn. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Pandoskan economy, worth 870 trillion Federal Rubles a year, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 254,483 Federal Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Slavers view "what did your last slave die of" as a request for a demonstration, product development labs spend most of their money fighting the government's patent infringement lawsuits, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and the mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pandoska's national animal is the Tsar Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Pandoskan Orthodoxy.

Pandoska is ranked 168,630th in the world and 9,119th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 21.37 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
