The USSR of Comradeistan is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Papa Stalin with an iron fist, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.024 billion Comradeistanians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moscow. The average income tax rate is 69.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Comradeistanian economy, worth 100 trillion Communist Stamps a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 49,694 Communist Stamps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Children who display even minimal sporting aptitude are immediately assigned a personal trainer, skateboarding is punishable by heavy fines, newspapers cannot report anything about politicians without their explicit consent, and Comradeistanian politicians are often described as having more style than substance. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Comradeistan's national animal is the Commie Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Trotskyism.

Comradeistan is ranked 117,635th in the world and 68th in The Galactic Empire of Britain for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 70,962.37 Standard Monetary Units.
