The Republic of Aditya Santhanam is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Honorable Chairman Nyuk Nodge with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.652 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Basementine. The average income tax rate is 75.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Aditya Santhanamian economy, worth 155 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 Woodchip Exports. Average income is 93,989 Vodkas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, more and more people are signing up for the government party, authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets, and libraries are refusing to stock A Midsummer Night's Dream because it has an ass in it. 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 155,553rd in the world and 80th in The Socialist Syndicalist Union for Most Avoided, scoring 0.75 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
