The Federal Republic of Cossack Peoples is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Principle Chairman Vadimir Bezukhov with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.55 billion Cossacks 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Krasnoyarsk. The average income tax rate is 77.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Cossack economy, worth 964 trillion bills a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 271,611 bills, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

The media have begun calling the government treasury "Principle Chairman Vadimir Bezukhov's stash", the nation's prisons are touted as the best weight loss programs money can't buy, unused plastic recycling bins are being dumped into landfills by the tonne, and suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cossack Peoples's national animal is the Black Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Cossack Peoples is ranked 121,012th in the world and 4,127th in Lazarus for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,368.81 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
