Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federal Republic of Soviet Manchuria is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 580 million Soviet Manchurians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Changchun. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 63.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Soviet Manchurian economy, worth 66.7 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 Automobile Manufacturing. 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 115,000 Manchurian Rubles, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

Children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet, invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, knitting needles have been banned in the name of public safety, and a spate of enforced closures has left 'Government FM' as the nation's only radio station. 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 57,075th in the world and 73rd in Confederacy of Allied States for Longest Average Lifespans, with 63.5 Years.
