The Royal-Red Peoples Republic of Union of Socialist Republic of The Isle is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Commissar Petrenko with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.124 billion Isleans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt 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 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Islean economy, worth 688 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 Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 134,436 Sovietums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Troublemakers boast about how many times they have to visit their therapist, the government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots, the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, and young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield. 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.

Union of Socialist Republic of The Isle is ranked 188,666th in the world and 47th in Ridgefield for Least Corrupt Governments, with 84.45 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
