The Gosduma of East Sakhlin is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Konstantin Rodzaevsky with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and pith helmet sales. The cynical, devout population of 4.188 billion Sakhalinsks 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aleksandrovsk-Sakhalinskiy. The average income tax rate is 72.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient East Sakhlinian economy, worth 506 trillion Saks a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 121,034 Saks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rumor has it that Konstantin Rodzaevsky has won three lotteries in a row, postcards from East Sakhlinian driving test centres are popular souvenirs, war vets look after war animals, and the police turn a blind eye to desecration if it's done in the name of religion or protest. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Sakhlin's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Russian Orthodox.

East Sakhlin is ranked 174,307th in the world and 7,013th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -5.29 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
