The Republic of Aditya Santhanam is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Nyuk Nodge with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.926 billion Slavs 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Basementine. The average income tax rate is 76.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Aditya Santhanamian economy, worth 287 trillion Vodkas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is 98,209 Vodkas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government blames all suspicious phenomena on flying saucers, government officials across Aditya Santhanam are being "encouraged" to adopt Gopniks to set an example for the populace, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aditya Santhanam's national animal is the Gopnik, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aditya Santhanam is ranked 40,674th in the world and 40th in The Socialist Syndicalist Union for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 7,545.43 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
