The Oppressed Peoples of Starving Commies is a large, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, rampant corporate plagiarism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 83 million Starving Commiesians 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 Welfare, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The imploded Starving Commiesian economy, worth 594 billion deaths a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 7,158 deaths, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign nations kill migratory animals at random in the hope that Starving Commies will pay them to stop, women wearing male lounge-wear are quizzed for hours by mental health practitioners, political candidates recite daily pledges of loyalty to their chosen party, and NationStates is now a popular brand of laxatives despite Max Barry's protests. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Starving Commies's national animal is the Pig, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Starving Commies is ranked 146,170th in the world and 14th in From The End for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 252.74 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
