A country that still exists. The Soviets tricked us into thinking that they broke up in the 90s, but they really didn't.
The reason why the Siovet Union did not break up in the 90s was because they had no reason to. Bigger country=more power.

A country that was born in the 1920's due to the Russian Revolution led by Lenin, leader of the Bolsheviks. The CCCP (USSR) was born in spite of the longing for a utopia in which all social classes were abolished,however the idealistic dream was never reached, this can be mostly attributed to Josef Stalin, who imposed several 5 year plans to 'help' the Soviet economy, and Stalin immidiately turned the young nation into a totalitarion dictatorship in which secret police operated, not unlike fascism. However, I, being a Communist, still support the failed dream and attempt of a utopia, such an attempt reflects the potentiality for overall selflessness and charity. May Communisms strong ideal live for all days.
The Soviet Union was an example of a failed attempt at Communism and only further made the form of government disputed among nations, precisely what Cuba, China, Vietnam, North Korea, and other nations are doing today.

A nation whose government killed more people than Hitler, built more nuclear weapons than America, oppressed more people in a larger region than any other nation in history, and fell becuase hundreds of millions of people decided they didn't want to live under an illegal government.

Russia now is a tatter of a shread. Their military has less than 400,000. Their ships are afraid to sail beyond their coastlines. Their "government" is more corrupt than any American coroporation. Their money is worthless. Boy, Russia is such a grand place now!

The USSR's military was the most problem-ridden ever to have existed and they would not have won against the United States in a land war.
Don't listen to wannabe scene-loving "punks" about the USSR. Stalin was worse than hitler and the only way it "solved other country's disputes" was by murdering their government officials and rolling in the tanks. Idiots on these boards need to practice what they preach and read into the fact that the Soviet Union was the worst fascist nation ever to exist.
