The United Socialist States of URRSSMM is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 166 million URRSSMMians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 72.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish URRSSMMian economy, worth 4.44 trillion Pesetas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 26,774 Pesetas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Machine-peeled candied grapes come in individual packaging for the busy commuter, referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", and criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. URRSSMM's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

URRSSMM is ranked 99,723rd in the world and 3,416th in the West Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 18.46 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
