Sovetskiy Soyuz i Vostochnyy Blok

Population40 million

The People's Republic of Sovetskiy Soyuz i Vostochnyy Blok is a small, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its soft-spoken computers, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 40 million советы are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped советский economy, worth 1.82 trillion советский рубльs 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 black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 45,491 советский рубльs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's taxpayers pay for foreign government's extravagances, wigged-out hunters report playing croquet with the Queen of Hearts, endocrinology is a rapidly growing field of study, and it is mandatory for actors to exit stage left. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sovetskiy Soyuz i Vostochnyy Blok's national animal is the нести, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sovetskiy Soyuz i Vostochnyy Blok is ranked 128,772nd in the world and 119th in Portugal for Nicest Citizens, with 4.49 Average Smiles Per Day.
