The True Soviet Republic of Wubdich is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Council of the People with a fair hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, state-planned economy, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.115 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 Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nilrem. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Wubdichian economy, worth 383 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 181,333 Mark-Equivalents, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Weapons produced by newly nationalized armaments factories have been found to contain sawdust instead of gunpowder, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, immigrants who don't like the taste of Wubdichian Turnip Chips are immediately deported, and country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized. 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 5,388th in the world and 227th in the Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 11,291.42 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
