The Eternal Empire of Rossiyaana is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by High Queen Rheae Rhegion with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, cynical population of 4.594 billion Rossiyaanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Choridian. The average income tax rate is 90.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rossiyaanan economy, worth 612 trillion Denarii 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 133,286 Denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Excited Romeos drive all the way to the next village for a date, it's considered a civil right to be allowed to neglect and mistreat your own children, anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, and Bigtopian relations have become a minefield. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rossiyaana's national animal is the Golden Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Solarionism.

Rossiyaana is ranked 195,987th in the world and 5,797th in the Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -6.86 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
