The Sovetskiy Soyuz of The Great Expanses is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by General Secretary Yuri Andropov with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 10.47 billion Soviets are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moscow. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Soviet economy, worth a remarkable 2,162 trillion Soviet Rubles 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 206,540 Soviet Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Frustrated women are overjoyed at the provision of communal washing machines, pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, and attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Great Expanses's national animal is the Eurasian Brown Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is State Atheism.

The Great Expanses is ranked 7,665th in the world and 1st in The Geopolitical Roleplay Region for Most Patriotic, with 44.69 Flags saluted per person per day.
