The Armed Republic of Comrade 251 is a colossal, orderly nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical, devout population of 9.735 billion Comrade 251ians are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 72.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Comrade 251ian economy, worth 166 trillion Labormarks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Basket Weaving, Automobile Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Pizza Delivery. 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 17,102 Labormarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Comrade 251's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Comrade 251 is ranked 42,993rd in the world and 1st in Revolutionary Communist Union for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
