The Dominion of Minskyiv is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its public floggings, pith helmet sales, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 311 million Minskyivians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 46.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Minskyivian economy, worth 6.81 trillion 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 large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Cheese Exports, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Trout Farming, and Uranium Mining. 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 21,883 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, the nation's weary schoolchildren excel at sport but must count scores on their fingers, politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental, and it's a miracle that there aren't more plane crashes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Minskyiv's national animal is the walrus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Minskyiv is ranked 238,732nd in the world and 7,531st in the Rejected Realms for Most Developed, scoring 40.97 on the Human Development Index.
