The Union of Socialist Republics of Stasnov is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Premier Nikolai Krasnov with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 12.181 billion Stasnovans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vastava. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Stasnovan economy, worth 712 trillion Stasnovan Rubles 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 Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports. Average income is 58,462 Stasnovan Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School children asked "what is two times two?" are likely to form a symposium to discuss how different answers make them feel, tourists visiting the nation are harangued for being capitalist pig-dogs, visions of giant pink Stasnovan Bears are a common side effect after Stasnovans eat their meals, and the delay between passed legislation and real world implementation is often a decade or longer. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stasnov's national animal is the Stasnovan Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Stasnov is ranked 153,937th in the world and 16th in New Atlas for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -7.48 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
