The United Socialist States of HardBassSlavia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Secretary Comrade Tsar Gopniki with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 2.79 billion HardBassSlavians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kortaxgorod. The average income tax rate is 94.1%.

The frighteningly efficient HardBassSlavian economy, worth 418 trillion semechkis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 149,954 semechkis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Battlefield gains are quickly lost when enemies don't respect a time-out, signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, and boats straying just metres away from the shore will raise the ire of the Coast Guard. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. HardBassSlavia's national animal is the Adidas tracksuit bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hardbass Orthodoxy.

HardBassSlavia is ranked 5,304th in the world and 58th in The Leftist Assembly for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 94.07 Effective Tax Rate.
