The USSR is a state that existed from 1922 to 1991. The Soviet Union at the time of the destruction settled nearly one-sixth of the populated land of the planet. The number of inhabitants of the USSR was 294 million people.
The highest group bodies performed the functions of supranational administration. The apparatus of the Central Committee of the CPSU worked permanently. His impact was colossal, employees were set on a par with government administrators.
The supreme legislative and representative body was formally the 2-chamber Supreme Soviet of the USSR, which consisted of the Council of the Union and the Council of Nationalities. It was directed by the Presidium.

- Internationalism - ideas of friendship and mutual assistance between "fraternal public". Significant funds were allocated to support foreign communist parties.
- The desire to transform the environment to the needs of Soviet society. The development of virgin lands, air and outer area, the construction of canals, roads, power plants - all this was romanticized, overwhelmed the media.
Industrialization began in 1927: old enterprises were actively rebuilt, new ones were built.
