The Colony of US-SSR is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Acting Deputy Premier Stephen Miller with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, vat-grown people, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.007 billion US-SSRians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Putingrad. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.2%.

The frighteningly efficient US-SSRian economy, worth 735 trillion US Rubles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 146,879 US Rubles, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 735,128 per year while the poor average 16,482, a ratio of 44.6 to 1.

Several inches are being added to first class seating, if foreigners can hit a spittoon from five paces they get a free holiday to US-SSR, woodcutter axes are cited as the most common cause of death amongst pussycats, and pet rocks are sold by the pound. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force. US-SSR's national animal is the pussycat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Russian Orthodoxy.

US-SSR is ranked 194,068th in the world and 8,728th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 17.57 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
