The Dictatorship of The better USSR is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by The better Vladimir Putin with an iron fist, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, strictly enforced bedtime, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.469 billion USSRians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry and Administration also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The better Moscow. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 80.3%.

The frighteningly efficient a USSRian economy, worth a remarkable 3,415 trillion Smapeses 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, Retail, 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 amazing 457,350 Smapeses, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,561,060 per year while the poor average 98,599, a ratio of 15.8 to 1.

Foreign heads of state have taken out restraining orders against a USSRian ambassadors, it is often said that only The better Vladimir Putin could bring down Dàguó, the nation's student exchange programs are something of a one way street, and petitioners are increasingly resorting to climbing through The better Vladimir Putin's window to draw attention to their issues. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. The better USSR's national animal is the tribble, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The better USSR is ranked 694th in the world and 1st in Camerania for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 10,380.19 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
