The Equestrian Union of Russkov Soviet is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by EQU Premier Aleksi Coltsov with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 13.888 billion Equestrians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Mareskov. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Russian economy, worth a remarkable 2,963 trillion EQRS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 213,380 EQRS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast, turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius', people make a career out of medical voyeurism, and Russian soldiers are assured their new ray-guns will finally power up after the next round of ominous chanting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Russkov Soviet's national animal is the Pegasus, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Disciples of the Crimson Star.

Russkov Soviet is ranked 1,338th in the world and 4th in The Confederacy of Free Nations for Most Developed, scoring 97.41 on the Human Development Index.
