Regional Influence: Sprat


The Empire of Russian Oil is a gargantuan, orderly nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, state-planned economy, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cynical, humorless, devout population of 24.034 billion Russian Oilians 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 tiny, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 2.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Russian Oilian economy, worth a remarkable 7,760 trillion Roubles 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 large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. 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 322,901 Roubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Wigged-out hunters report playing croquet with the Queen of Hearts, Leader's Dreadnought-class tankbuster limousine is said to have more ammunition than the entire Brancalandian Army, Russian Oil has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, and access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Russian Oil's national animal is the Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Russian Oil is ranked 277,944th in the world and 12,169th in the South Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -20.08 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
