The Republic of Fake communism15 is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its zero percent divorce rate, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.798 billion Fake communism15ians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — prioritizes Administration, with Industry, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 81.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fake communism15ian economy, worth 159 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Woodchip Exports, Tourism, Information Technology, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 88,610 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Many mayors are barely in office before being kicked out for minor parking violations, you can call your arthritic immigrant neighbour for all your roof-tiling and guttering needs, the state subsidizes liposuction, and interviewees for teaching jobs are waterboarded to "reveal undesirable histories". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fake communism15's national animal is the Dog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Fake communism15 is ranked 103,429th in the world and 5,174th in the Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 33.06 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
