The Dystopia of Third Soviet Union is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Premier Elijah with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.729 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 Moscow Megacity. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Russian economy, worth a remarkable 1,645 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, Uranium Mining, 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 347,861 Russian rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Warfare increasingly resembles a video game, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 35,697th in the world and 16th in Institute of Cellulose for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 46.65 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
