The Soviet Union is the most powerful communist nation, and a permanent member of the International Congress.
In 1917, the Russian Revolution ended with the Russian Empire becoming Bolshevik Russia.
In 1922, Bolshevik Russia became the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, with the President of Bolshevik Russia, Vladimir Lenin, becoming the 1st President of Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.
President Lenin ruled until 1924, when he was replaced by Interim President Leon Trotsky. Josef Stalin, who led the Soviet Police, accused Trotsky of treason against the Soviet Union, and had him exiled from the nation. Josef Stalin was elected Soviet President in 1927. As President Stalin had died in 1953, the Soviet Proletariat elected Georgy Malenkov as the Soviet President.
In 1985, Mikhail Gorbachev became the first Soviet President to die, when a bomb went off under his motorcade. Vladimir Putin became Soviet President after him.
The Soviet President is elected for a life term by the Soviet Communist Party. The Soviet President is also the Soviet Communist Chairman, and he chooses the Soviet Prime Minister.
The Soviet Proletariat is unicameral, with one deputy elected for each 300,000 people, elected by the people. The term was to the Soviet President's liking. In addition, each Soviet republic chooses 34 deputies.
