The Globalist of Third Soviet Union is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Premier Elijah with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, sprawling nuclear power plants, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.561 billion Russians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Moscow Megacity. The average income tax rate is 67.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Russian economy, worth 582 trillion Russian rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 227,497 Russian rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Retiring citizens are dragged away in the middle of the night by mysterious men in black suits, colonists who were promised new lands find only war-torn devastation, the Russian military is limping towards victory, and advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Third Soviet Union's national animal is the Russian bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Atheism.

Third Soviet Union is ranked 213,057th in the world and 569th in First World Order for Nudest, with 8 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
