The Judge of Third Soviet Union is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Premier Elijah with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.934 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, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Environment and Public Transport are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Moscow Megacity. The average income tax rate is 76.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Russian economy, worth 753 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, Retail, and Uranium Mining. 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 256,835 Russian rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country, politicians look weirdly alike, cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, and travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air Third Soviet Union flights to avoid the pay lavatories. 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 195,807th in the world and 341st in First World Order for Safest, scoring 19.75 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
