The True Soviet Republic of Wubdich is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Council of the People with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, digital currency, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.183 billion Wubdichians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nilrem. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Wubdichian economy, worth 398 trillion Mark-Equivalents a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 182,473 Mark-Equivalents, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sales of trenchcoats are on the rise, incarcerated crime lords manage their empires from massage tables, it takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, and a blood-red mark on the doorframe means a building must be passed over for destruction. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wubdich's national animal is the Mammoth, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Wubdich is ranked 80,643rd in the world and 2,227th in the Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,770.84 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
