The Royal-Red Peoples Republic of Union of Socialist Republic of The Isle is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Commissar Petrenko with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 7.414 billion Isleans 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of People's Isle. The average income tax rate is 94.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Islean economy, worth 934 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 fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 125,993 Sovietums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, military advisors frequently remind San Vitenzan farmers that they have to pull the pin on a grenade before throwing it, the government is cracking down on subversive groups, and ordinary soldiers trade rumors about the top secret "Death From Above" project. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Union of Socialist Republic of The Isle's national animal is the Pelican, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Union of Socialist Republic of The Isle is ranked 185,034th in the world and 49th in Ridgefield for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -6.2 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
