“Бог с нами.” President Vladimir Putin
|Category: Corrupt Dictatorship|
Regional Influence: Nipper

|Leader||President Vladimir Putin|
The Grand Republic of Versail is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Vladimir Putin with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, infamous sell-swords, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 15.553 billion Russians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Education, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moscow. The income tax rate is 100%.
The frighteningly efficient Versailian economy, worth a remarkable 7,604 trillion Rubles 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, 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 amazing 488,952 Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.
Exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, passwords to nuclear codes must now contain upper and lower case characters, teachers are skilled at leaving no evidence of child cruelty, and the law says that all Russians are created equal no matter how they were created. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Versail's national animal is the Brown Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Orthodox Christian.
