The Soviet Socialist States of The Unionized Stoners is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Andre Superovich Superfly with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, soft-spoken computers, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 29.953 billion Stoners are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government 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 7,623 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 254,520 AK-47s, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Unionized Stoners has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, genetic screening weeds out citizens whose legs don't bend easily at the knee, posters on 'Stoner Values' advise against being proud of The Unionized Stoners, and elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates. 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 206,780th in the world and 164th in Canada for Most Primitive, scoring -813.2 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
