The United Socialist States of Petrovskas is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Premiere Mikavich with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 3.315 billion Petrovskasians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Education, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Petropavolosk. The average income tax rate is 95%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports industries.

"It was only a joke" is no longer a defense for the felony of discrimination, government policy is dictated by a major religion, people are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer, and a government program is underway to revitalize Petrovskas's beaches. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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, and its currency is the Kolish.

Petrovskas is ranked 2nd in Unitas and 42,413th in the world for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, scoring 104 on the Inverse Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
