The People's Republic of U R S B is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.774 billion Brasileiros Soviéticos are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ruanpolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 73.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Socialista Brasileiro economy, worth 387 trillion 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 a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Trout Farming, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 impressive 139,750 rubles, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

Voters must frequently select what they view as the lesser of two evils on the ballot, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, young girls aren't having a ball but they are enjoying themselves, and young people suspect their parents might be a little bit stupid. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. U R S B's national animal is the Snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

U R S B is ranked 3,303rd in the world and 9th in Soviet Democracy for Most Influential, scoring 19,238 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
