The Pool Noodle Manufacturer of Minskiev is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 599 million Minskievians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kyiv. The average income tax rate is 67.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Minskievian economy, worth 70.1 trillion Minskievian Rubles a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 117,040 Minskievian Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The banshee wail foretells skies of death, nuclear submarines have been deployed to protect the nation's banana supply, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. Crime is totally unknown. Minskiev's national animal is the Buffalo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Minskiev is ranked 38,536th in the world and 1,165th in the Rejected Realms for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 3,489.62 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
