The Federal Republic of Russilina is a large, safe nation, remarkable for its digital currency, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 96 million Russilinans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.2%.
The Russilinan economy, worth 4.83 trillion Dussorss a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 50,283 Dussorss , with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.
Sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside, the government encourages conflict abroad to increase arms sales, monocled merchants with funny accents are applying for Russilinan citizenship in droves, and political dissidents are cut off from essential services. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Russilina's national animal is the Hippopotamus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
