The Freeborn Peoples Republic of Russian Fedration is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Konstantin Vanzin with an iron fist, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, rampant corporate plagiarism, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.772 billion Russians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coruscant. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Russian economy, worth a remarkable 3,879 trillion Vyonias a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 231,324 Vyonias, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Group photos of the members of parliament are often mistaken for family reunions, most pop videos prominently feature the Russian flag, politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament, and serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Russian Fedration's national animal is the Brown Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Russian Orthodoxy.

Russian Fedration is ranked 240,094th in the world and 328th in Wintreath for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -24.98 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
