The Union of Soviet States of Slaytania is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Stalinovich with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 20.466 billion Slaytanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of South of Heaven. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.
The frighteningly efficient Slaytanian economy, worth an astonishing 13,139 trillion Strummers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 642,027 Strummers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Fruit market traders let their stock spoil rather than reduce their prices at the day's end, the government enforces a policy of 'from each according to their ability, to each according to the available budget', it turns out that money can buy you happiness, and paralegals spend all day Hewlett-Packing attorneys' law briefs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Slaytania's national animal is the House Giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Stalinism.
