The Dictatorship of The Soviet States of Markov is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Vassil Markov with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, pith helmet sales, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed population of 3.356 billion Markovians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Markov. The average income tax rate is 61.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Markovian economy, worth 211 trillion shmeckles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Trout Farming. Average income is 62,895 shmeckles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects, a stitch in time could see you serving nine, the nation wears its high incidence of chromosomal diseases as a badge of pride, and wigged-out hunters report playing croquet with the Queen of Hearts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Soviet States of Markov's national animal is the brown bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Atheism.

The Soviet States of Markov is ranked 29,260th in the world and 2nd in Robot Industries for Most Stationary, with 519.0866122288 Days.
