The Colony of US-SSR is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Deputy Premier Stephen Miller with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, flagrant waste-dumping, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.196 billion US-SSRians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Putingrad. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.5%.

The frighteningly efficient US-SSRian economy, worth 594 trillion US Rubles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 141,758 US Rubles, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 746,741 per year while the poor average 14,340, a ratio of 52.1 to 1.

Curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net, thieves are flogged in public for their crimes, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and the new "Bloodbath" orange tree autonomously seeks and destroys independent orchards. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force. US-SSR's national animal is the pussycat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Russian Orthodoxy.

US-SSR is ranked 15,473rd in the world and 718th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 141,758.16 Standard Monetary Units.
