|Leader||God-Emperor Peter IV|
|Faith||Russian Orthodox Christianity|
The Holy Intergalactic Empire of HYDRA-Russian Empire is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by God-Emperor Peter IV with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, pith helmet sales, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.708 billion HYDRA-Russians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Petrograd. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 93.1%.
The frighteningly efficient HYDRA-Russian economy, worth a remarkable 3,265 trillion Roubles 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, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, 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 an amazing 278,881 Roubles, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.
The disabled are forced to undergo an MRI scan every time they pick up their benefit payments, nations that kill a HYDRA-Russian can expect a strongly worded letter, the police think a properly conducted criminal investigation is a real pain, and extraordinary rendition is nothing out of the ordinary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. HYDRA-Russian Empire's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Russian Orthodox Christianity.
