The New Soviet Union of Stylan is a massive, genial nation, ruled by General Secretary Bernard Sanders with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 1.621 billion Stylanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Leningrad. The average income tax rate is 76.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Stylanian economy, worth 38.8 trillion Neorubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 23,932 Neorubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The parliament building has installed a revolving door, libraries have replaced overdue book fines with mandatory mental health assessments, billions are being spent on a new island airport, and running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stylan's national animal is the Red Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Stylan is ranked 53,842nd in the world and 660th in The Communist Bloc for Lowest Crime Rates, with 68.63 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
