The Socialist Republics of Sovietsoyuz is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mikhail Gorbachev with an even hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 1.446 billion Sovietsoyuzians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moskua. The average income tax rate is 71.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming zaSovietsoyuz economy, worth 160 trillion rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 111,271 rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Child labor has been outlawed, mandatory updates on software drivers often bring life to a halt, from the highest mountain to the deepest cave - one can always count on finding a good cell signal in Sovietsoyuz, and the sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sovietsoyuz's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sovietsoyuz is ranked 137,261st in the world and 5,189th in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -2.83 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
