|Animal||All Animals Equal Under Comrade Stalin|
The Union of Soviet Socialists Republicx is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Comrade Stalin with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.522 billion Russians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moscow. The average income tax rate is 76.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Russian economy, worth 169 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 black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Retail. 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 111,527 Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.
The Russian delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...", monarchs only get custody of the royal crown on holidays and weekends, contestants on Soviet Socialists Republicx's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent, and stoogery and pratfalls are about as scathingly clever as Russian humor gets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Soviet Socialists Republicx's national animal is the All Animals Equal Under Comrade Stalin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is URA.
