The Interplanetary Republic of FSPR is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Proletariat with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, state-planned economy, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.487 billion Planetarians 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.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moskovia. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Planetarian economy, worth 232 trillion Kromers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 156,439 Kromers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vegetables are crisper thanks to CRISPR, ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, anti-government web sites are springing up, and the nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. FSPR's national animal is the Tiny Tree Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

FSPR is ranked 248,102nd in the world and 1,264th in The Communist Bloc for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -9.83 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
