The Trans-Siberian Peoples of Time Stands Still Land is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Yul Brynner with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, strictly enforced bedtime, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 27.357 billion Time Stands Still Landians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, although Administration, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vladivostok. The average income tax rate is 54.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Time Stands Still Landian economy, worth a remarkable 1,296 trillion Russian 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 a slick, highly efficient black market in Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, Book Publishing, 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 47,380 Russian Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Holidaymakers sleep curled up on the floor as hotel beds are replaced with oversized bookcases, crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly, and some are born loving old plays and some have old plays thrust upon them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Time Stands Still Land's national animal is the Amur Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Orthodox.

Time Stands Still Land is ranked 14,375th in the world and 2nd in Vladivostok for Most Stationary, with 1,331.4712311912 Days.
