The Royal-Red Peoples Republic of Union of Socialist Republic of The Isle is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Commissar Petrenko with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 2.786 billion Isleans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of People's Isle. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Islean economy, worth 376 trillion Sovietums a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 135,053 Sovietums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Extraordinary rendition is nothing out of the ordinary, childhood friends of Commissar Petrenko are living it large abroad at the taxpayers' expense, the Pelican is a protected species, and there's never a spare chair in the retirement home. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Union of Socialist Republic of The Isle's national animal is the Pelican, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Union of Socialist Republic of The Isle is ranked 136,918th in the world and 38th in Ridgefield for Most Primitive, scoring -178.25 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
