The Greater Brownie Tsardom of East Sakhlin is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Acting Regent Grand Duke Nikolai Rurikid with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, keen interest in outer space, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.279 billion Sakhalinsks are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. The average income tax rate is 60.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient East Sakhlinian economy, worth 266 trillion Saks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 116,866 Saks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Bureaucrats close new businesses for not complying with the Penguin Packaging Index, the government advises foreign diplomats to speak softly and carry a big bag of cash, parents are really careful to pick the right gun for their kids' birthdays, and the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 Orthodox Christianity.

East Sakhlin is ranked 123,682nd in the world and 5,027th in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -21.73 on the Hayek Index.
