Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The United Socialist States of Petrovskas is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Premiere Mikavich with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The humorless population of 6.379 billion Petrovskians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Petropavolosk. The average income tax rate is 76.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Petrovskian economy, worth a remarkable 1,047 trillion Kolishes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 164,236 Kolishes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has an international reputation for compassion, daily newspapers are permitted to run only pro-government stories, surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, and airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Petrovskas's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Petrovskas is ranked 2,944th in the Rejected Realms and 139,899th in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -295 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
