Soviet Pickles

The Armed Republic of Soviet Pickles is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 244 million Homosexuals are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, pro-business, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.7%.

The powerhouse Homosexual economy, worth 22.0 trillion balls a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Tourism. Average income is 89,976 balls, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 447,304 per year while the poor average 10,231, a ratio of 43.7 to 1.

Native tribes have been driven to extinction by hunting, ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, COID-19s are frequently shot for looking at people 'in a funny way', and parents are held criminally responsible for their children's crimes. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Soviet Pickles's national animal is the COID-19, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Soviet Pickles is ranked 167,042nd in the world and 7th in Totalitaria for Most Politically Free, scoring 7.75 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
