The United Socialist States of The Slavic Rus is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, state-planned economy, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 805 million Rusians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lestallum. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Slavic Rusian economy, worth 78.1 trillion Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is 97,022 Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, Slavic Rusian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, the nightly news reports prosaically on the government blindly throwing money at despotic kidnappers, and boys who take just one date to the high school prom are called 'losers'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Slavic Rus's national animal is the Red Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Slavic Rus is ranked 201,142nd in the world and 4th in Battlestar Necropolis for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -6.16 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
