The Violet Soviet Socialist Republic

Population1.163 billion

LeaderNatasha Stalin


The People's Republic of The Violet Soviet Socialist Republic is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Natasha Stalin with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.163 billion Soviet Republicans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Icydawn. The average income tax rate is 80.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Violet economy, worth 52.5 trillion Emeralds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 45,098 Emeralds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, soldiers are equipped with multi-million Emeralds battlesuits, golden statues of Penguins line the memorial avenues of the Funerary District, and the military will start wars with other nations on a lark. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Violet Soviet Socialist Republic's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Violet Soviet Socialist Republic is ranked 168,718th in the world and 7,768th in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 44.54 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
