Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federal Republic of Soviet Manchuria is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 208 million 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 prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Welfare, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 56.6%.

The all-consuming Soviet Manchurian economy, worth 19.6 trillion 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, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, 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 94,462 Rubles, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

Soviet Manchuria has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, army rations are served on silver platters, the government encourages conflict abroad to increase arms sales, and citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Soviet Manchuria's national animal is the Red-crowned Crane, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Soviet Manchuria is ranked 131,326th in the world and 103rd in Confederacy of Allied States for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -1.67 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
