The Soviet States of Europe

FaithRoman Catholicism


The Osean confed member state of The Soviet States of Europe is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Frank IX with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and zero percent divorce rate. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.242 billion Soviets are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Philippe. The average income tax rate is 77.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sovietic economy, worth 359 trillion Eurodubloes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 110,892 Eurodubloes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention, and government-run brothels can be found on every street corner. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Soviet States of Europe's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

The Soviet States of Europe is ranked 40,944th in the world and 2,153rd in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,209.02 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
