The USSR of Democratic Formosa is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The cynical population of 3.352 billion Russians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small government prioritizes Defense, with Welfare, Public Transport, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moscow. The average income tax rate is 18.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Democratic Formosan economy, worth 128 trillion Rubles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Basket Weaving, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 38,338 Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fearful citizens watch their every move as does their government, all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, and teenage TV characters are played by thirty-year-olds by the end of the second season. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Democratic Formosa's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Democratic Formosa is ranked 20,443rd in the world and 4th in Concert of Europe for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 4,270.11 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
