The Federation of New Russian Directorate is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Dimitri Vorzhevsky with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 18.453 billion Russians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Russian Directorate City. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient New Russian Directoratean economy, worth a remarkable 6,600 trillion Federal Pounds 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 black market in Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. 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 357,718 Federal Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again, they who do not work shall not eat, and crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Russian Directorate's national animal is the Eagles and Bears, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

New Russian Directorate is ranked 2,818th in the world and 2nd in Empire of Novaya Equestria for Lowest Crime Rates, with 124.34 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
