-National Anthem of the USSR
The United Soviet Socialist Republic or more commonly referred as The Soviet Union was founded in Revolution by the working class, led by Vladimir Lenin in the 1922. The belief that everyone was equal, and that the government should control everything was the main point of the Soviet Bloc, which spread to over 1/6th of the world's inhabitable land before falling in 1991.
A Brief "Real World" HistoryEdit
The Soviet Union was a constitutional soviet state that existed on the territory of most of the former Russian Territory in Eurasia between 1922 and 1991. A more informal and simplified version usually used among its residents was the Union (Soyuz).
The Soviet Union had a single-party political system dominated by the Communist Party until 1990. Although the USSR was nominally a union of Soviet Republics (of which there were 15 after 1956) with the capital in Moscow, it was in actuality a highly centralized state with a planned economy.
The Soviet Union was founded in December 1922 when the Russian SFSR, which formed during the Russian Revolution of 1917 and emerged victorious in the ensuing Russian Civil War, unified with the Transcauscasians, Ukrainian and Belorussian SSRs. After the death of Vladimir Lenin, the first Soviet leader, power was eventually consolidated by Joseph Stalin,who led the country through a large-scale industrialization with command economy and political recession. During World War II, in June 1941, the Soviet Union was attacked by Germany, a country with whom it had signed a non-aggressional pact. After four years of warfare, the Soviet Union emerged as one of the world's two superpowers, extending its influence into much of Eastern Europe and beyond.
The Soviet Union and its satellites from the Eastern Bloc were one of two participating factions in the Cold War of the post-war era, a prolonged global ideological and political struggle against the United States of America and its Western Bloc allies; the Soviet bloc ultimately lost, however, having been hit by economic standstill and both domestic and foreign political unrest. In the late 1980s the last Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachov tried to reform the state with his policies of perestroika and glastnost, but the Soviet Union collapsed and was formally dissolved.
