The Dictatorship of West Russian Republic is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Rudel with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.586 billion West Russian Republicians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Moskau. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient West Russian Republician economy, worth a remarkable 2,517 trillion Reichsmarks 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, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. 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 450,687 Reichsmarks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,328,239 per year while the poor average 120,332, a ratio of 11.0 to 1.

To 'cut off family ties' is no longer just a phrase, West Russian Republician soldiers know how to create single mothers in more ways than one, nations across the world are quick to praise Rudel's good looks and intellectual prowess, and loss of the ability to speak is a common affliction of the elderly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. West Russian Republic's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christian.

West Russian Republic is ranked 134,179th in the world and 49th in The Wolf Clan for Most Pro-Market, scoring -49.67 on the Rand Index.
