The Dastardly Driveling Delegate of Minskiev is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Ivan Kovalenko with a fair hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, compulsory military service, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.77 billion Minskievians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kyiv. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Minskievian economy, worth a remarkable 1,592 trillion rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 333,766 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ghost regiments exist only on paper, a little pushing and pulling is needed for big ships to pass, clowns are being rounded up and admitted to mental institutions, and the fishing lobby has stemmed the tide of environmental regulations. Crime is totally unknown. Minskiev's national animal is the walrus, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Zyonnism.

Minskiev is ranked 52,249th in the world and 1,346th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 3,198.3 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
