The Dictatorship of Savaska is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by High Dictator Vasiliy Savenkov with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, anti-smoking policies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.616 billion Savaskans 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Agosra. The average income tax rate is 85.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Savaskan economy, worth 156 trillion Trozepia's shards 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 Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 97,077 Trozepia's shards, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Money can't buy love but mercy is entirely negotiable, rumour has it High Dictator Vasiliy Savenkov needs a calculator to multiply ten by ten, Max Barry is this year's Miss Savaska, and the nation forgives those who are big enough to admit they made a mistake. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Savaska's national animal is the Savaskan white-bellied viper, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Chosen of Trozepia.

Savaska is ranked 199,035th in the world and 8,732nd in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 5.7 Obesity Rate.
