The United Socialist States of URRSSMM is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its daily referendums, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 371 million URRSSMMians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. The average income tax rate is 73.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped URRSSMMian economy, worth 11.6 trillion Pesetas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Cheese Exports, and Tourism. Average income is 31,368 Pesetas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued, smoking is banned in public areas, cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, and poaching has been on the rise after animals from the nation's zoos were released into the wild. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. URRSSMM's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

URRSSMM is ranked 21,442nd in the world and 459th in the West Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 73.72 Effective Tax Rate.
