International Socialist Union

The United Socialist States of International Socialist Union is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its lack of airports, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 261 million International Socialist Unionians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 81.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish International Socialist Unionian economy, worth 7.32 trillion ISU-Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery and Information Technology. Average income is 28,030 ISU-Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, citizens often glare angrily at jet contrails, and popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. International Socialist Union's national animal is the Capitalist Pig, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

International Socialist Union is ranked 192,765th in the world and 405th in The Internationale for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring zero on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
