The People's Republic of Sovetskiy Soyuz i Vostochnyy Blok is a small, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its soft-spoken computers, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets.

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.
