The United Socialist States of Fuflix workers union is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Vladimir Petrokov with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.299 billion Fuflix workers are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Stalingrad. The average income tax rate is 93.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fuflix workers unionian economy, worth 605 trillion Fuflixian rubles 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. 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 amazing 263,417 Fuflixian rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cleaners are very careful not to bump into the big red button on Vladimir Petrokov's desk, unemployed mercenaries drift the country looking for new careers, for some reason the census focuses on daily banana ingestion and hourly quip rate, and the men in trenchcoats hanging around playgrounds are actually police officers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fuflix workers union's national animal is the Russian Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Fuflix workers union is ranked 200,152nd in the world and 6,710th in The East Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.6 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
