The Dictatorship of Russberlin is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Papa stalino with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.249 billion Russberliners 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seveik. The average income tax rate is 38.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Russberlinian economy, worth 75.6 trillion Ruskikans a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 60,563 Ruskikans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace', abortions are carried out secretly in shady backstreet clinics, the government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly, and it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Russberlin's national animal is the Russberlin Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christian catholic.

Russberlin is ranked 204,262nd in the world and 121st in Confederacy of Layem for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -7.07 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
