The United Socialist States of ReformedUSSR is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.215 billion Commies 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 large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of STALINgrad. The average income tax rate is 68.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The thriving Russian economy, worth 122 trillion potatoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Trout Farming, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 100,631 potatoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Leader has been known to threaten dissenting citizens with a machine gun at press conferences, it is against the rules of boxing to hit above or below the belt, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, and a government program is underway to revitalize ReformedUSSR's beaches. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ReformedUSSR's national animal is the albino polar bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
