Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The United Socialist States of Petrovskas is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Premiere Mikavich with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.795 billion Petrovskians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Petropavolosk. The average income tax rate is 89.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Petrovskian economy, worth 715 trillion Kolishes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 149,147 Kolishes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is weighing the price of victory following a nuclear strike, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, and children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces. 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 3,008th in the Rejected Realms and 138,390th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -33 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
