The Federal Republic of Cossack Peoples is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Principle Chairman Vadimir Bezukhov with an iron fist, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, infamous sell-swords, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.36 billion Cossacks are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Krasnoyarsk. The average income tax rate is 78.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Cossack economy, worth 896 trillion bills a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 266,704 bills, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Blind students are at a disadvantage now that test papers printed in braille have been discontinued, Cossack Peoples is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, the criminal underworld is dominated by cupcake smugglers and back-alley doughnut shops, and napalm is the tool of choice for disabling eco-unfriendly forestry operations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cossack Peoples's national animal is the Black Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Cossack Peoples is ranked 1,410th in the world and 60th in Lazarus for Most Armed, with 17.82 Weapons Per Person.
