The SPU member state of The Soviet States of Europe is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime minister Frank with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, state-planned economy, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.394 billion Soviets love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

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 72.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Sovietic economy, worth 147 trillion Eurodubloes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 105,540 Eurodubloes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities, constipated-looking politicians are uptight about potty mouths, childhood friends of Prime minister Frank are living it large abroad at the taxpayers' expense, and Prime minister Frank is worshipped as a god. 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 134,666th in the world and 6,618th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -77.86 on the Hayek Index.
