The United Socialist States of Soviet Syria is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical population of 745 million Soviet Syrians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Soviet Syrian economy, worth 79.2 trillion labor vouchers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 106,268 labor vouchers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, legislators must raise their hands if they want to speak, at customs baggage gets an x-ray and female travelers get an ultrasound, and political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Soviet Syria's national animal is the lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Soviet Syria is ranked 20,760th in the world and 243rd in The Communist Bloc for Most Developed, scoring 74.5 on the Human Development Index.
