The Soviet Satellite State of Siegrune is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Generalsekretär Erik Honacker with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory vegetarianism, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 15.033 billion communist thralls 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of East Berlin. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.4%.

The frighteningly efficient communist economy, worth a remarkable 2,744 trillion bananas 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 Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. 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 182,553 bananas, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 872,343 per year while the poor average 22,402, a ratio of 38.9 to 1.

Power to the people comes from the barrel of a gun, garishly-decorated government buildings are being hailed as the height of 'religious nouveau', bands of adventurers rove the countryside searching for monsters, and it is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Siegrune's national animal is the spring-gun, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Marxxxism.

Siegrune is ranked 87,643rd in the world and 3,492nd in The East Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 35.44 Effective Tax Rate.
