The People's Republic of Siberia Nova is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Mikhail Mikhailovitch with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.222 billion Siberia Novans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Administration, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mikhailograd. The average income tax rate is 87.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Siberia Novan economy, worth 277 trillion Siberian Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 124,757 Siberian Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, lobster tastes best when it is red, and state officials tend to disappear after they forget to salute Mikhail Mikhailovitch's portrait. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Siberia Nova's national animal is the Siberian Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism - Leader Cult.

Siberia Nova is ranked 78,713th in the world and 3,491st in Lazarus for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 788.46 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
