The United Socialist States of Sovieticos is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Temujin Baghatur with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 6.014 billion 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 the Environment, Education, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shandalar. The average income tax rate is 72%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
Children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "Love and peace!" as a way of life, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, and 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sovieticos's national animal is the The Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Rublo.
