The People's Socialist Union of Usniya is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Validev Kastlotskv with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 11.94 billion Usniyans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vlastiyavek. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Usniyan economy, worth a remarkable 1,706 trillion Usniyets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 142,890 Usniyets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People often get liposuction to reduce their air fares, public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, interviewees for teaching jobs are waterboarded to "reveal undesirable histories", and wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Usniya's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Usniya is ranked 226,063rd in the world and 63rd in Renegade Islands Alliance for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -10.25 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
