The National Soviet Republic of Syktyvkara is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, rampant corporate plagiarism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 693 million Syktyvkarans 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, 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 Syktyvkar. The average income tax rate is 79.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Syktyvkaran economy, worth 41.6 trillion Kolsans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 60,071 Kolsans, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, pocket dialling is a criminal offence, military doctrine says not to open fire until you see the "beady little eyes" of Johnny Foreigner, and the nation has unofficially betrayed its values. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Syktyvkara's national animal is the Double-Headed Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.
