The fictional device that the Russians had in Dr. Strangelove that would automatically set off if the USA ever attacked the Soviet Union. It's detination would destroy the entire world. The reasoning was that it was a whole lot cheaper to make it and threaten the world then try to keep up in Arms Race, Space Race and Peace Race against the USA.
It's a Dooms Day Device, able to blow up the entire world with jsut a flick of a switch.
