The Dictatorship of Stalin Enthusiasts is a tiny, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 12 million Stalin Enthusiastsians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Healthcare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 5.9%.

The very strong Stalin Enthusiastsian economy, worth 719 billion dong a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 59,981 dong, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Debate rages over whether ground fish guts can be spread on fields, reporters who negatively comment on politicians' haircuts are cut from the news, the nation is stuck in permanent election mode as politicians demand constant do-overs, and white strait-jackets are the new orange jumpsuits. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Stalin Enthusiasts's national animal is the forg, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Stalin Enthusiasts is ranked 19,078th in the world and 37th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 5,335.98 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
