The Toppled Regime of The True Czar is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Czar with an even hand, and notable for its triple-decker prams, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, devout population of 10.533 billion true Czarians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Detroit. The average income tax rate is 76.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient A true Czarian economy, worth 936 trillion Dollars 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. 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 88,950 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children regularly take part in blood sports that result in extreme boo-boos, The Czar signs the laws but abides by none of them, vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, and pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The True Czar's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Greek Pantheon.

The True Czar is ranked 196,098th in the world and 7,051st in Osiris for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -11.49 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
