The People's Socialist Union of Usniya is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by the Usniyan People's Party with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 4.356 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 591 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 135,775 Usniyets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", elected officials often serve for decades in a single term, and both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade. 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 115,597th in the world and 117th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Largest Mining Sector, scoring zero on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
