The USSR of Democratic Formosa is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The cynical population of 3.311 billion Russians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small government prioritizes Defense, with Welfare, Healthcare, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moscow. The average income tax rate is 15.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Democratic Formosan economy, worth 126 trillion Rubles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Basket Weaving, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 38,096 Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Historical fiction has been banned, only adults may purchase violent video games, advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines, and jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Democratic Formosa's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Democratic Formosa is ranked 139,224th in the world and 23rd in Concert of Europe for Most Cultured, scoring 63 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
