The Centralized Union of Novoroyssia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Commander Boris Putin with an iron fist, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, aversion to nipples, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.177 billion Novoroyssians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Moscow. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Novoroyssian economy, worth a remarkable 1,958 trillion Novoroyssian Hryvnias 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, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 378,362 Novoroyssian Hryvnias, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,087,927 per year while the poor average 104,577, a ratio of 10.4 to 1.

Historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, Big Brother is still watching even when your big brother is dead, the first test of a good kindergartener is the quality of the sponge-baths they give, and scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Novoroyssia's national animal is the Polar Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Voidist atheism.

Novoroyssia is ranked 896th in the world and 2nd in New Warsaw Pact for Highest Average Incomes, with 378,362.48 Standard Monetary Units.
