The Socialist Republic of Soviet Manchuria is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Qian Wuying with an iron fist, and notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.644 billion Soviet Manchurians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Changchun. The average income tax rate is 71.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Soviet Manchurian economy, worth 198 trillion Manchurian Rubles 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 large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. 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 120,706 Manchurian Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The police insist that racism does not exist, children who can't memorize their multiplication tables are sent to the mines, billions are being spent on a new island airport, and Qian Wuying's recent "I have a dream that we will fight them by raking muck on the beaches" speech seems a little derivative to many. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Soviet Manchuria's national animal is the Red-crowned Crane, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Soviet Manchuria is ranked 22,383rd in the world and 10th in The Red Guards for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 3,062.47 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
