The People's Republic of The Finnish USSR is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kittydog with an iron fist, and notable for its teetotalling pirates, parental licensing program, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 5.663 billion lads are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New-Zealand-Sealandville-on-the-sea. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 72.6%.
The strong cringe economy, worth 482 trillion Spongebobs 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 a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Retail. 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 85,138 Spongebobs, with the richest citizens earning 9.7 times as much as the poorest.
The new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, patriotic citizens chant "there's only one The Finnish USSR" at foreigners, the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", and the nation grinds to a halt on the anniversary of every marginally noteworthy event. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Finnish USSR's national animal is the Pingu, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Confusementism.
