Sovetskiy Soyuz i Vostochnyy Blok

Population354 million

Currencyсоветский рубль

The People's Republic of Sovetskiy Soyuz i Vostochnyy Blok is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 354 million советы 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped советский economy, worth 16.1 trillion советский рубльs 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 a slick, highly efficient black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 45,480 советский рубльs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Endocrinology is a rapidly growing field of study, it is mandatory for actors to exit stage left, the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, and voters must frequently select what they view as the lesser of two evils on the ballot. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sovetskiy Soyuz i Vostochnyy Blok's national animal is the нести, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sovetskiy Soyuz i Vostochnyy Blok is ranked 9,812th in the world and 230th in Lazarus for Most Income Equality, scoring 84.18 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
