The Soviet Socialist States of The Unionized Stoners is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Andre Superovich Superfly with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, rampant corporate plagiarism, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 27.639 billion Stoners are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Weaselgrad. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Stoner economy, worth a remarkable 6,414 trillion AK-47s a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 232,091 AK-47s, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Endocrinology is a rapidly growing field of study, motivational posters send motorists positive vibes in high-risk areas, doctors spend more time writing sick notes than caring for the sick, and twice-daily toilet inspection rotas for government buildings are archived for public appraisal. Crime is totally unknown. The Unionized Stoners's national animal is the weasel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Unionized Stoners is ranked 16,541st in the world and 47th in Canada for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
