The People's Republic of Petrovovic is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, rampant corporate plagiarism, and compulsory military service. The cynical population of 343 million Petrovians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Welfare, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Petrovograd. The average income tax rate is 69.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Petrovovician economy, worth 6.84 trillion Rubels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 19,954 Rubels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Petrovovician politicians are often described as having more style than substance, people who question what bunker construction has to do with economic reform tend to disappear, hell is not always other people, and NationStates is now a popular brand of laxatives despite Max Barry's protests. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Petrovovic's national animal is the Black Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Petrovovic is ranked 97,323rd in the world and 24th in Deutschland for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 61.57 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
