The Republic of Soviet Socialist Turks is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Soviet Demir Paşa with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.015 billion Soviet Socialist Turks are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Soviet Ankara. The average income tax rate is 68.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Soviet Socialist Turk economy, worth 37.3 trillion soviet lire 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 slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Book Publishing. 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 36,761 soviet lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Extraordinary rendition is nothing out of the ordinary, residential tower blocks are surrounded by warrens of concrete tunnels, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, and exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Soviet Socialist Turks's national animal is the soviet greywolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Soviet Socialist Turks is ranked 149,754th in the world and 3rd in Imperial Confederation of Turanians for Most Devout, with 5.9 Prayers Per Hour.
