The EW6 1914 player of The New Ruski Empire is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Holy Emperor Nikolay III with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, zero percent divorce rate, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.883 billion Russians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moscow. The average income tax rate is 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Russian economy, worth 214 trillion Rubls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 114,100 Rubls, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The police double as repo men, serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk, adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, and politicians accepting drinks in bars are executed for taking bribes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The New Ruski Empire's national animal is the Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Orthodox Christianity.

The New Ruski Empire is ranked 221,684th in the world and 7,891st in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 77.24 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
