The United Soviet States of Svadyetsk is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by General Secretary Alexei Petrov with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.462 billion Svadyetskans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Duovograd. The average income tax rate is 79.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Soviet economy, worth 824 trillion People's Labour Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 184,723 People's Labour Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

A recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father, builders across Svadyetsk are blocked up with orders for new public loos, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, and populations of two-headed ushankas have been found around recently-uncovered archaeological sites. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Svadyetsk's national animal is the ushanka, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Communism.

Svadyetsk is ranked 38,625th in the world and 6th in Kali Yuga for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,328.15 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
