“True democracy is the established power of the Counsils”
|Category: Democratic Socialists|
Regional Influence: Sprat

|Leader||Council of People's Commissars|
The Räterepublik of Russ-Ostland is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Council of People's Commissars with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.236 billion Russ-Ostlandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Karl-Marx-Stadt. The average income tax rate is 88.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Russ-Ostlandian economy, worth 461 trillion derevyannies 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 142,583 derevyannies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, there's never a spare chair in the retirement home, people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, and the Russ-Ostlandian delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Russ-Ostland's national animal is the Kulaks, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
