The United Socialist States of Zvezdanaya is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Yuri Konstantinovich with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed population of 5.783 billion Zvezdanayans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kosmosa Gorod. The average income tax rate is 79.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Zvezdanayan economy, worth 554 trillion rubles 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 95,952 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Money grows on trees, cogitators and mass debaters are skiving off work to hang around the National Symposium Park, Propaganda and Partisanship 101 is a required class all political candidates must pass before being nominated by their chosen party, and divorce is illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zvezdanaya's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Posadism.

Zvezdanaya is ranked 223,799th in the world and 1st in Snigistan for Fattest Citizens, with 8.79 Obesity Rate.
