The Soviet Empire of The Soviet Republic of West Virginia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Todd Howard with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 3.972 billion Soviet Republic of West Virginians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gulagtopia. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Soviet Republic of West Virginian economy, worth 507 trillion Gulag Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 127,654 Gulag Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

If foreigners can hit a spittoon from five paces they get a free holiday to The Soviet Republic of West Virginia, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across The Soviet Republic of West Virginia, and goldfish bowls are three metres in diameter. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Soviet Republic of West Virginia's national animal is the Capitalist Pig, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Godd Howardism.

The Soviet Republic of West Virginia is ranked 10,114th in the world and 600th in Lazarus for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 395.48 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
