The United Socialist States of Sovieticos is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Temujin Baghatur with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 6.479 billion love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
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 73%, 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.
