The Industrial Communist Empire of Soviet Remnants is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Premier with an iron fist, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, smutty television, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.854 billion Soviets are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Moscow. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.
The Soviet economy, worth a remarkable 1,817 trillion Gold Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 141,426 Gold Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
All guns must be registered, workers have seized control of the economy, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, and the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Soviet Remnants's national animal is the Soviet Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Commune.
