Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People's Socialist Union of Usniya is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by the Usniyan People's Party with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, cynical population of 4.025 billion Usniyans 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, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vlastiyavek. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Usniyan economy, worth 545 trillion Usniyets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 135,621 Usniyets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", and elected officials often serve for decades in a single term. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Usniya's national animal is the Hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Usniya is ranked 11,705th in the world and 36th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 98.8 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
