The Soviet Socialist Republic of Sovetlana is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Premier Tyler Brooks with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, prohibition of alcohol, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 9.426 billion Sovetlanans 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baltimore. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Sovetlanan economy, worth a remarkable 1,186 trillion rubles 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 125,861 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Love is in the air, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, Sovetlanan novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about Premier Tyler Brooks, and cars have been banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sovetlana's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Sovetlana is ranked 2,873rd in the world and 58th in The Communist Bloc for Most Pacifist, with 179.61 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
