Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federal Republic of Soviet Manchuria is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its avant-garde cinema, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 406 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 Industry, Education, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Changchun. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 61.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Soviet Manchurian economy, worth 46.7 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 114,971 Manchurian Rubles, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

Genetic research is temporarily tied up in government red tape, the government is denying reports that criminals injected with experimental drugs have turned into monstrous supervillains, the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, and no personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police. 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 22,264th in the world and 38th in Confederacy of Allied States for Highest Average Incomes, with 114,971.94 Standard Monetary Units.
