The Dictatorship of Russberlin is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Papa stalino with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.134 billion Russberliners 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seveik. The average income tax rate is 41.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Russberlinian economy, worth 133 trillion Ruskikans a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 62,576 Ruskikans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries, a rolling news ticker tape of disclaimers runs across the bottom of the screen on all TV shows, students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, and the practice of capital punishment proves divisive. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Russberlin's national animal is the Russberlin Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christian catholic.

Russberlin is ranked 74,065th in the world and 62nd in Confederacy of Layem for Most Secular, with 18.67 Atheism Rate.
