The Tholian Assembly of CPSU is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Steven Ivannov with a fair hand, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 12.446 billion Cseepians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vladivostok. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.
The large but sluggish Cseepian economy, worth 785 trillion Energy Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 63,122 Energy Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Vladivostok's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Vladivostok Times is sold out, the new coalition government has 99 problems and can't agree on how to fix one, and space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. CPSU's national animal is the Tribble, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Athiesm.
