The Grand Duchy of Fake communism25 is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.537 billion Fake communism25ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Fake communism25ian economy, worth 297 trillion Dollars 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Woodchip Exports, Soda Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. 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 an impressive 117,406 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.

Smiling in public is seen as criminally suspicious behaviour, a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, the intelligence community is playing 4-D chess with an imaginary spy network, and parents are relieved they no longer need to help with their kids' algebra homework. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fake communism25's national animal is the Dog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Fake communism25 is ranked 152,770th in the world and 4,201st in the Rejected Realms for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -1.16 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
