The Dominion of Minskyiv is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 365 million Minskyivians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 52.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Minskyivian economy, worth 8.70 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 a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Cheese Exports, Uranium Mining, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Trout Farming. 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 23,834 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People across the world seek to be healthier by eliminating carbs, you gots to be part of the Party to get in to the party, little children cry as their rainbow drawings are seized by the Straight-Thought Police, and sports fans complain that cricket tests now last an unbearable ten days. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Minskyiv's national animal is the walrus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Minskyiv is ranked 107,293rd in the world and 3,410th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Governments, scoring 12.81 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
