The Empire of Moscovaya is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, ubiquitous missile silos, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 286 million Moscovayans 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 71.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Moscovayan economy, worth 1.51 trillion rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Cheese Exports, and Trout Farming. Average income is 5,269 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The incidence of wrist sprains is falling, tourists are denied entry because of a distant relative married to a Lilliputian, Leader claims to be the epitome of family values, and wedding bands come in pairs to form wedding manacles. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Moscovaya's national animal is the bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Moscovaya is ranked 163,080th in the world and 4,859th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Poor Incomes, with 5,269.14 Standard Monetary Units.
