The USSR of Ranponian is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.947 billion Soviets enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moscow. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 46.6%.

The Ranponianian economy, worth 68.8 trillion Soviet Rubles a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Cheese Exports, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 35,316 Soviet Rubles, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.

Appendix transplant figures have recently doubled, surveillance cameras are banned, military spending is on the increase, and Ranponian has designated Moscow as its capital city. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ranponian's national animal is the Eurasian brown bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ranponian is ranked 124,109th in the world and 134th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most Extreme, scoring 12.5 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
