The United Socialist States of Northernsiberia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by joseph stalin with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful population of 2.652 billion KV5behemoths are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stalingrad. The average income tax rate is 97.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Northernsiberian economy, worth 453 trillion Silvers 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 Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 171,153 Silvers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, and unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northernsiberia's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Northernsiberia is ranked 161,705th in the world and 5,187th in Lazarus for Safest, scoring 19.72 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
