Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United Socialist States of Petrovskas is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Premiere Mikavich with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.844 billion Petrovskians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Petropavolosk. The average income tax rate is 91.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Petrovskian economy, worth a remarkable 1,589 trillion Kolishes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 202,698 Kolishes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Premiere Mikavich's handshakes with opposition leaders usually lead to thumb wars, nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, and bike rage is all the rage. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Petrovskas's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Petrovskas is ranked 148,195th in the world and 3,110th in the Rejected Realms for Fattest Citizens, with 3.9 Obesity Rate.
