The United Socialist States of Petrovskas is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Premiere Mikavich with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, smutty television, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.578 billion Petrovskians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Petropavolosk. The average income tax rate is 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Petrovskian economy, worth a remarkable 1,529 trillion Kolishes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 201,880 Kolishes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, all footpaths have tollbooths, legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, and sociologists can charge whatever fee they like as the nation tries to find itself. 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.
